Aug. 29, 2016 - Building the Bioeconomy – Combatting Climate Change is this year’s theme for the first Biomass North AGM and Forum. 


The event is focused on moving the Canadian Bioeconomy further along the value chain through knowledge sharing, technology demonstrations, workshops on policy gaps and skills development, and building strategic partnerships between industry, communities, and academia.

This three-day event will be held at the Clarion Resort Pinewood Park in beautiful North Bay, Ont. The Forum’s flagship event streams include the Climate Action Forum and the Building a Regional Bioeconomy Seminar, to discuss the importance of forest, agriculture and urban biomass resources in addressing climate change from both national and regional perspectives.

The Gala Awards Dinner will allow the best and most innovative sector leaders to be recognized for the excellent work they do. Additional event streams at the Forum include a research symposium, workshops, a trade show, job fair, and the AGM for Biomass North members. 


Tickets are available for purchase on the Biomass North website. Attendees can choose to participate in the complete Forum or purchase single-day passes, Gala Awards Dinner tickets, or a combination of these options.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available for organizations looking to highlight their services to the Forum’s regional, national and international attendees, while a Call for Nominations is currently open to nominate Canadian bioeconomy leaders in ten distinct awards categories.
