And the winner is (All of us.)

A full day of innovation was followed by our Awards Gala, where a star-studded line up of innovators, influencers and market leaders were recognized for their contributions and advancements in the green building industry in the year past.

Wined. Dined. And had a good time.

The Gala was a fun evening that began with cocktails and music, and was followed by dinner before the main event where we invited this year’s best to walk the green carpet and accept awards ranging from Building Innovation to Ontario Green Builder and more!
