Although we still have some time to go until the February 23, 2017 Housing Innovation Forum, we just couldn't resist releasing an early taste of the Forum programming. Programming confirmed today brings a variety of topics that will inspire, inform and provoke thought.
Topics include (but are not limited to):
* The tension between Policy and Market

*Telling the Story: Innovative Approaches to Marketing
EnerQuality is offering two courses - ESNH: Advanced Building Science and ESNH: 2017 Standard - on January 18 & 19, 2017, to get you up to speed.
Taught by Andy Oding and taking place at the BILD offices in Toronto, Advanced Building Science (a pre-requisite for day 2) will serve as refresher for long-time participants and introduction for new staff, new vendors and new ESNH builders.
ESNH 2017 Standard will introduce you to the changes in the new Standard and get you on top of your game.
