Members, politicians hail success of EID 2013
The 13th edition of ONEIA's annual Environment Industry Day (EID) was held on November 27, 2013 and received universally positive feedback. Throughout the afternoon, small teams of ONEIA members met with key MPPs and Ministers to hear their concerns and share our views on the types of policies that will promote growth in our sector.
The afternoon saw more than 100 representatives from a range of companies and various government ministries attended a panel discussion of challenges facing our sector. The panel, moderated by Dan Ovsey of the National Post, featured executives from leading environment and cleantech companies who offered their candid observations on the often-challenging relationship between industry and government.
The action then shifted to the Ontario Legislature at Queen's Park, where Environment Minister The Hon. Jim Bradley co-hosted a reception that featured a who's who of industry and government leaders.
Thanks to our sponsors of the day and to all those who attended for making it happen! And a selection of photos of the day are available here.
