Natural Resources Canada is initiating a Canada-wide market study on the fenestration industry, which is expected to be completed by early 2018. Between now and August, Natural Resources Canada will also be further engaging stakeholder groups to discuss the aspirational goals and market barriers. For example, they will be presenting at Fenestration Canada’s Annual General Meeting on June 2nd, and the Insulting Glass Manufacturers’ Alliance Summer Conference in late July. After the Energy and Mines Ministers Conference in August 2017, governments will be re-engaging with stakeholder to start developing roadmaps and measures to overcome the barriers identified.
The group held a workshop on residential windows on March 29th. Click here to view a summary of the discussions at the workshop. This document has been assembled from the presentation, comments raised during the workshop and side bar discussions.
