Each local session is designed to help connect HRAI members and industry professionals with the policy-makers and climate change champions in the GTA/Golden Horseshoe and Vancouver regions, with more cities to come...

We will take a 3-phase approach to discovery:

  1. The first session will consist of a panel of municipal representatives, regulatory bodies and associations focused on climate action initiatives.
  2. This will be followed by a 10-minute video produced by AHRI and HRAI. The video puts focus on the issue of decarbonization and electrification in North American and how the industry is ready for the challenges of a low carbon economy.
  3. Next, The HVACR sector. We will hear from experts from the industry. What are the technologies currently available, how the sector is adapting to the climate challenge and what are some of the challenges facing the industry in meeting the goals established by policy makers?
