A Virtual Program!

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of our flagship event, GreenTech 2020, which was set for  June 2-4 in Montreal, Quebec.

We might have put one knee down in front of COVID-19 and cancel our flagship event, however, we have not said our last word!

In a effort to relay some of the valued knowledge sharing, networking and discussions at the core of  GreenTech, our team has developed interactive, video-conference sessions based on aspects of the GreenTech 2020 program. Three sessions will be offered in June, and three more in September.
