The third annual Biomass North Forum will take place Oct. 16-18 at the Valhalla Inn in Thunder Bay.

Dubbed Mapping Canada’s Bioeconomy: Drivers, Roadblocks and Bridges, the event will examine how government, industry, academia and communities throughout the country are navigating towards a sustainable bioeconomy future. 

A bioeconomy centres on using renewable biological resources to produce food, energy and other value-added products, resulting in innovation, job creation, and economic development. Sustainability is a key tenet of the ideology.

The three-day event will include guest speakers, workshops, industry tours, a tradeshow, technology demonstrations, and networking opportunities. It will be capped off by an awards gala recognizing leaders in the bioeconomy.

The call is now open for presenters, exhibitors, sponsors and award nominees.

Based in North Bay, the Biomass North Development Centre is a non-profit organization that advocates for a robust Canadian bioeconomy. 

As a member-based sector association, Biomass North builds strategic alliances between all participants of the value chain – from small municipalities to large industry and all points in between.
