Environment Industry Day 2015 a success

Annual legislative event attracts MOECC Minister, dozens of environment/cleantech companies

ONEIA’s annual environment Industry Day at the Ontario Legislature at Queen’s Park on October 20 was well-received, with many attendees calling it the Association’s “best yet.”  Attendees heard from an afternoon environmental policy pundits panel that offered their observations on the priorities and context of the legislature, and then attended an evening reception at the Legislative dining room that was co-hosted by the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, the Hon. Glen Murray. 

Murray offered a sobering assessment of the climate challenges facing the world, but noted that the province’s environment industry is well-positioned to develop the technologies and adaptation strategies that the world needs to meet this challenge. 

The reception also saw Ellen McGregor, CEO and President of Fielding Chemical Technologies, receive the annual Errick Skip Willis Award for outstanding leadership and a track record for raising awareness of and creating action to enable the environmental industry sector in Ontario.
