Canada’s planned transition to a low-carbon economy presents both a significant opportunity and an enormous challenge for the HVAC/R industry to ensure policy decisions will benefit Canadians and industry stakeholders alike.

That topic will be the focus of the 2019 Symposium of the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI). The group plans a spectacular networking event and a walk-through of the state-of-the-art award-winning net-zero facility – The Joyce Center of Partnership and Innovation Building at Mohawk College, which was awarded the 2018 Environmental Sustainability Award.

The keynote speaker will be former Toronto mayor David Miller, who is now North American director of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group. He will review some of the challenges that cities face and the efforts underway to address them in the move to a low carbon economy. Attendees will also hear from senior staff from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) who will expand on “the Pan-Canadian framework and the space heating road mapping exercise.”

The HRAI 2019 Symposium will take place on April 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Joyce Centre at 135 Fennell Avenue West, Hamilton, Ont. For more information, please visit or email Caroline Czajko at
