CBN 2018 Brownfields Summit Reports


In June 2018, CBN was proud to present Canada's first-ever Brownfields Summit.  During this exciting day, participants heard presentations on:

  • The state of brownfield regulations across the country and how well those regulations are serving stakeholders, including the public and
  • An update on the National Round Table on the Economy and the Environment (NRTEE) 2003 report, 15 years later

This was followed by a series of break-out sessions to map out the future for brownfields in Canada.  Participants showed great awareness of the issues and areas where progress is still required, and came up with some very key ideas on how we can advance the brownfields agenda in the next few years.

The report of the findings was presented at the Brownie Awards Gala on November 21, 2018.  Click on the links below to download the relevant materials:
