Big Green Ideas for Atlantic Canada’s Economic Recovery

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on our economy with many businesses across Canada faced with revenue loss, closures, and ongoing uncertainty. As the dialogue evolves from relief to recovery, Atlantic Canada has an important opportunity to build back better by focusing on projects and initiatives that create jobs while contributing to a diversified, resilient and low-carbon economy. The Atlantic region has many unique and untapped opportunities in renewable energy, clean technology, ocean technology, electricity infrastructure, and sustainable buildings that could spur economic development and ensure a long-term resilient future for the region.

Join organizations from across Atlantic Canada for a conversation about their big green ideas for a resilient recovery in the region. Speakers will highlight key projects and opportunities, the benefits, and what’s needed to make them a reality.
