The Green Jobs Forum is Canada’s first comprehensive, multi-sector platform for business leaders, visionaries and teachers to connect and exchange their knowledge with the next generation. The goal is to help the environmental industry develop long-term and exciting career paths and ensure the right professionals to fill them.

Attendees will learn from inspiring and insightful presentations, interact with leaders and mentors in the private, public and non-profit sectors within the following green industry rooms:

  1. Resource Management
  2. Blueprint for Clean Capitalism
  3. The Alberta Energy Opportunity
  4. Creating Sustainable Cities
  5. The Future of Environmental Employment

The Exhibit Hall will host 30+ organizations to offer information about recruitment, job search help, environmental education, volunteering and networking.
