Are you a contractor working in residential renovation in BC? The HPSC Contractors Forum is an opportunity to connect with other leading professionals in HVAC, Fenestration, Insulation, Renovation and Energy Advisory Services. Please join us for the 2020 HPSC Contractors Forum. 

Date: Tuesday, February 25, 2020
Time: 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM PST
Location: Anvil Centre 777 Columbia Street New Westminster, BC V3M 1B6 

We are pleased to announce the confirmation of our moderated panel and the discussion topic: The Industry Needed to Meet the Targets – Getting Ready.

The Government of BC has committed to adopting the model National Building Code for existing buildings (2024), reducing carbon pollution by 2 million tonnes (2030) through better buildings, and converting home heating to heat pumps in 70,000 home through incentives of up to $3,000 per heat pump. Metro Vancouver has mandated that carbon emissions be reduced by 45% from 2010 levels. These initiatives, while well supported by the HPSC, will have a profound impact on the home performance contractor community. And, contractors are critical to the successful decarbonization of BC. 

Join us for a lively discussion moderated by Corey Diamond, Executive Director of Efficiency Canada. Panelists include:

  • Nat Gosman, A/Executive Director, Built Environment, BC Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources: responsible for Clean BC – Better Homes
  • Paul Shorthouse, Senior Director, Delphi Group: lead consultant on the CleanBC Workforce Readiness Plan Project for Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training
