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.

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

  • Mix & Mingle with a side of business

    May 26, 2021  4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

    Join SBM for a mix and mingle on Gather.Town and a side of business for our AGM on Zoom.The Manitoba chapter of CaGBC was incorporated 15 years ago, the organization which would become Sustainable Building Manitoba. Celebrate 15 years of green building advocacy and community building with us!
    Please join us on Wednesday May 26th at 4:30 PM and please register in advance, so that we can confirm that we have quorum.
    Enter through the Gather.Town space and say a quick hello to friends and colleagues it has been far too long since you have seen. Walk over to the AGM room and join Zoom for the AGM.
    Enjoy a charcuterie board and wine ordered locally from DeLuca’s or whatever snacks and drink you prefer from home.
    In Zoom we will run through our AGM business. This normally takes less than 30 minutes and is a great chance to meet our board of directors.
    After the meeting, walk around Gather.Town for the chance to chat with them and other attendees. Here, you can opt in to join facilitated discussions related to SBM’s objectives and help set our work on a path that reflects the views of the sustainable building community. Or you just keep catching up with folks you have not gotten to mingle with for far too long.
    Please note, that some firewalls do prevent Gather.Town from working, hence our using Zoom for the AGM portion. Gather.Town works best on Chrome and if you are using a tablet or phone your camera may not work.
    Our AGM is open to anyone, but only members have voting rights.
