Construction is undeniably changing. This is clear from the significant regulatory changes over the past few years, such as the BC Energy Step Code, to industry trends towards greater digitalization and industrialization.

Many challenges and opportunities, such as an ageing workforce and increased urban density and infrastructure development, lie on the horizon.

Recognizing the unique intersection of policy, trends, and the potential for leadership, the Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA) Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC), and the Zero Emissions Building Exchange (ZEBx) are partnering on a series of webinars for leaders in the construction industry.
