Conversation Series #3: Mass Timber Construction: Building a Cleaner Future

Building on momentum from our 2022 civic governance forum (High Ground), we are excited to present the first installment of our third Conversation Series taking place on Tuesday, May 17th from 2:00pm – 3:00pm PST via Zoom.

At this virtual event, Minister of Jobs, Economic Recovery and Innovation Ravi Kahlon and Minister of State for Trade George Chow will present B.C.’s newly-unveiled Mass Timber Action Plan, a comprehensive roadmap that details how B.C. will make buildings cleaner, while leveraging its abundant renewable resources and creating jobs for decades to come.

Hosted in partnership with Massive Canada Building Systems and the Office of Mass Timber Implementation, this candid, intimate, and local electeds-only conversation with Ministers Kahlon and Chow will present the local economic and environmental benefits of mass timber construction and explore what local governments can do to champion mass timber in their communities. This discussion, which will be moderated by Gaetan Royer, a Research Associate with the Columbia Institute, will include an open Q&A session.
