    For the past twenty-one years, ONEIA’s Environment Industry Day has brought executives from Ontario’s growing environment and cleantech sector to Queen’s Park to meet with MPPs from all parties. This year, to accommodate ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, we will again turn our regular lobby day into an entire week of virtual speakers, panels and meetings between MPPs and company representatives. This year’s event will explore business’ need for science- and fact-based policies in a growing age of unreason.

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

    Hiring crunch or opportunity: Trends that are shaping the labour market for environment and cleantech companies?

    Learn about the impact of emerging HR trends on your business and career

    Just as they begin to emerge from the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, a new challenge looms for Ontario environment and cleantech companies.  A series of trends in the labour market will reshape our sector in the next ten years, as a wave of retirements, a projected shortage of skilled professionals and a growing demand for environmental technology, products and services will place increasing demands on businesses and the people who make them succeed.  Where will the thousands of businesses in our sector find the professionals who will help them grow?  Where will the best opportunities be for career satisfaction and progress for employees?

    The Ontario Environment Industry Association (ONEIA) is pleased to partner with ECO Canada on a webinar to discuss a range of trends challenging our sector, including:

    • An estimated one in three people in the current environmental workforce is expected to retire in the next ten years
    • The demand for environmental workers will impact every region and nearly every occupation
    • Post-secondary graduates are essential to reaching environmental goals across all industries - but how to find and retain them?
    • Environmental workers are often qualified to work in several different industry sectors - what does a talent management strategy look like to attract them
    • Employers will be challenged to find qualified and experienced candidates - and this will be particularly true for several critical occupations

    Join us as we discuss these and other trends in an interactive online session.
