Canadian Brownfields Network AGM and Conference – June 12 2019

Revitalizing Brownfields: Enriching Communities

Far from being a problem, brownfields can bring many benefits to their communities.  The payback can include more housing (including affordable housing), an enhanced public realm, increased tax revenue from redeveloped properties, expanded employment lands, and expanding employment skills.  At this year’s conference, we’ll be exploring this in more depth through case studies and breakout sessions.  In addition, we’ll feature the return of these popular features:

  • Cross-country Check-up:  Coping with an evolving regulatory environment doesn’t have to be an exercise in frustration – join our panelists as they guide you through the latest changes in the regulatory landscape.
  • Legal Update:  Case law is becoming as important as regulatory change to brownfielders.  This session highlights recent court decisions to help you understand the impact they can have on your practice/projects.
  • Emerging Technology:  Development of remediation techniques doesn’t stand still.  In this fast-paced session, you’ll learn about more efficient, cost-effective ways of cleaning up brownfields so communities can reap the benefits.
  • HUB Awards:  Join us as we recognize individual excellence in brownfields with our 4th annual HUB Awards.

And, of course, you’ll have the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals.  All in all, it promises to be another engaging experience.  Plan to attend:
