The 2022 Canadian Hydronics Conference is fast approaching and ready to provide the hydronics industry with a jam-packed two-day conference. Presented by the Canadian Hydronics Council (CHC), this year’s conference will take place at the World Trade Center Prairieland Park in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, from Sept. 27 to 28.
Following the last iteration of the conference, a 2019 survey showcased that 100 per cent of delegates that responded would attend the hydronics conference again.
Over the course of two-days, hydronics professionals can expect to network with fellow industry peers, attend educational seminars, and explore exhibitor booths. As highlighted by Jason Jackson, chair of the CHC, the conference provides an opportunity for the industry to “embrace change and consider the future. Past experience has shown us all that learning and collaboration are key ways to being successful. The Canadian Hydronics Council Conference is a great opportunity to connect with those who are leaders in the hydronic heating and cooling industry. Education and innovation are two key aspects of moving forward.”
Both days of the conference will kick off with registration and an open show floor at 7 a.m. A jam-packed schedule of educational seminars is available and will be covering topics such as “Net-Zero and Electrification” presented by Robert Bean (Indoor Climate Consultants), “Smart Technologies in Hydronics” presented by Watts Water Technologies, “Snowmelt Systems” presented by Jean-Claude Remy (Uponor Ltd), “Chemical and Non-Chemical Water Treatment Options” presented by Kirk Nagus (Axiom Industries), and “Air-to-Water Heat Pumps” presented by Mike Miller (Taco Comfort Solutions). In addition to the seminars, there will also be a government panel presentation where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions.
Participants can also walk the trade show floor between the seminar sessions and explore the exhibitor booths. Some exhibitors attending the conference include Aqua-Tech Sales and Marketing Inc, Bell and Gossett, Bradford White Canada, CB Supplies, Eco-King, Master Group, Navien, Rheem Canada, Reliance Worldwide Corporation and Viessmann.

The CHC operates within the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH) and has represented Canada’s hot water heating industry for over 40 years. The CHC serves as a body dedicated to the hot water heating industry and works collaboratively with regulators and the government to address issues related to hot water heating. Alan Zanidean (Axiom Industries) and Michal Mazurek (Dynamic Agencies) will act as co-chairs for this year’s conference committee.
