In bringing together a diverse group of participants from different non-profit, business and environmental sectors, the Canadian Roundtable on the Green Economy – Québec City 2015, the first event of its kind, set itself a challenge: to show that there was sufficient converging interest in Canadian society to begin a productive discussion on creating an economy that is more modest in its carbon footprint and makes more efficient use of its resources.

With enlightening contributions made by guest speakers and the reflection work done by over 200 participants during round tables, many points of agreement were reached on actions to take to accelerate the shift towards a green economy. These actions include the need to price carbon, support for leadership by provinces and large Canadian cities during the transition, and the importance of supporting and encouraging innovation.
