Environment Industry Day 2015Registration is now open for our annual day at the Ontario Legislature on Tuesday, October 20th.
Each year, representatives from a range of ONEIA companies gather at Queen’s Park to talk about the concerns of our industry with politicians and policymakers. We all know that smart legislation and regulation is an important driver for our businesses – just as measures that are not well-thought out can be a business killer.
EID is our way to ensure that politicians hear about the tremendous potential of our industry and our need for a progressive legislative and regulatory environment. READ MORE and REGISTER
