ONE WEEK LEFT: Tour Toronto’s largest remediation project

Ontario’s premiere brownfields event is less than two weeks away, but there’s still time to register for a spot at the talk and tour on Toronto’s waterfront.


Ontario’s premiere brownfields event is less than two weeks away, but there’s still time to register for a spot at the talk and tour on Toronto’s waterfront.

After the success of the inaugural event in 2013, the one-day forum is back with Brownfield Redevelopment: Policy, Planning and Practice. The Wednesday, June 18, 2014 event is the perfect opportunity to hear from experts and companies leading the way in Canada’s growing brownfields market.

Event speakers include experts from Waterfront Toronto; Imperial Oil; Ontario Ministry of the Environment; Golder Associates; Green Municipal Fund; Evergreen; Blaney McMurtry LLP; Marsh Canada; Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP, and more. 

Not only will these speakers keep you up-to-date on remediation technologies, trends and challenges, but you’ll receive regional updates on brownfields development across Canada, plus a chance to learn about the interaction between the Ontario Building Code and the Ministry of the Environment’s Brownfield regulation. 

Hosted at the scenic Waterfront Campus of George Brown College (Queens Quay East and Lower Sherbourne St.), the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. event is a key networking opportunity for those new to the brownfields industry, or for industry veterans.

You’ll be able to chat over a drink and BBQ as spring winds its way into summer in Toronto.

New to the 2014 brownfields event is a private hard-hat and boots tour of the East Bayfront redevelopment project on Toronto’s waterfront. Enjoy a peak at a project that began in 2005 through Waterfront Toronto, an organization that has its hands full preparing sites for the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto.
