    Environment Industry Day (EID) 2019

    Entrepreneurship, business and the environment: The Path to Success

     WHEN: November 18, 2019

     WHERE: Hart House at UofT and Queen's Park - Ontario Legislature

    Ontario is home to Canada’s largest group of environment and cleantech companies. These firms create environmental solutions that customers across Ontario and around the world buy – but their ability to succeed and grow requires a smart regulatory process and timely approvals. As we celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week 2019 at Queen’s Park, Ontario companies are ready to discuss the barriers to growth for their businesses and how we can overcome them, realizing the opportunity in Ontario, to create jobs, start and grow world-beating companies, and create environmental solutions that Ontario and the world needs.

    For Sponsorship Opportunities please email or call 416-531-7884 for the sponsorship package.

    EVENT:  Environment Industry Day

    DATE:  Monday, November 18, 2019

    Breakfast pitch presentations featuring innovative companies: This year, EID falls on the start of Global Entrepreneurship Week, so we will start the day with a breakfast pitch presentation from a range of innovative companies that are developing the next generation of environmental solutions for Ontario and the world.

    Visit to Question Period: Attendees will visit the gallery for morning Question Period to hear the announcement recognizing EID and stay for the daily debate between MPPs.

    Networking luncheon on “What’s holding back environment companies?”:  ONEIA will host a networking luncheon with a guest speaker or panel (to be announced) on the issue of barriers to growth in our sector.

    Afternoon business table discussions: The afternoon will see attendees join discussions about the barriers that are holding back their businesses– and what we can do, together with government, to resolve them.  Discussions will explore such topics as Brownfields/Soil, Waste and organics, environmental consulting, and water/wastewater/stormwater.

    MPP and Minister meetings:  ONEIA schedules meetings with MPPs, cabinet ministers and opposition leaders throughout the day. Please note that only ONEIA members can volunteer for these teams and the final selection of who participates in them is determined by the organizing committee to ensure that the teams are representative of our industry.

    Reception with the Environment Minister:  Attendees will close the day with a reception co-hosted by the industry and The Hon. Jeff Yurek, Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks.  This reception will feature dozens of MPPs, senior staff, cabinet ministers and prominent figures from across our industry. 

    AGENDA: MPP meetings will take place throughout the day (beginning at 8:00 AM). These meetings are for specially-selected ONEIA members only and these teams will be notified in advance of the event. The morning pitch competition to launch Global Entrepreneurship Week at the Legislature will begin at 8:45 with a visit to Question Period to follow. The afternoon program will begin at 11:30 AM with lunch, networking and afternoon business table discussions on the barriers and opportunities facing environmental businesses. The day will close with an evening reception from 5:00 to 7:30 PM.

    LOCATION:  Afternoon table discussion & Evening Reception: Hart House at UofT, 7 Hart House Cir, Toronto, ON M5S 3H3
