WPAC annual conference heading to Ottawa, opens registrations

July 6, 2023
By Wood Pellet Association of Canada

Join the Wood Pellet Association of Canada in Ottawa Sept. 19-20 to hear experts from across the globe talk about the next generation of products that will shift traditional views of wood pellets.

It’s been 25 years since the first shipment of wood pellets left Canada. Today the pellet sector is a global powerhouse when it comes to clean, responsible and renewable energy and a critical solution in the fight against climate change.

The conference will bring together thought leaders and experts from around the world to inspire and challenge our sector to:

  • Explore conditions driving record growth for the pellet sector for a look at what’s ahead for Canadian pellet producers.
  • Discuss the opportunities to advance diversity and inclusion in our sector with the people and communities who are the foundation of our success.
  • Learn from those who have taken biomass from niche to mainstream; with both global and local stories.
  • Discover the next generation of technologies set to seize the opportunities ahead.

Pre-conference events on Monday, Sept. 18

Register for a full day of golf and hit the greens with industry colleagues at the Meadows Golf & Country Club. Or save this date to join us for our Safety Workshop and ‘Take Safety to New Levels.’ This interactive day will include practical examples from colleagues on the frontlines of safety and an exploration of new tools and resources that will enhance safety in your own operations.
