Education Resources

Someone once said that the answers for building sustainability is out there, it is now a matter of ensuring there is the political will and the public demand.

SBM runs regular Lunch and Learns to help ensure that Manitoba’s building community is engaging with the most up-to-date technology and best practices to ensure Manitoba is built sustainably and resilient.

Knowing that if the codes changed tomorrow align with what is needed to build net-zero and beyond, Manitoba’s workforce would not have the necessary skills, SBM has convened a stakeholder group support education institutions in educating and upskilling trade workers. Please get in touch to learn more.

Already SBM has supported the development of the Energy Auditor training program with MEIA and Red River College.

Check out SBM’s objectives to better understand the work being done.
