Public Record - Green Jobs: Is This the New 'New Economy'?


The Public Policy Forum hosts a symposium entitled “Green Jobs: Is This the New 'New Economy’?” Ottawa, Ont., November 2–3, 2009. The symposium’s aim is to discuss the implications of new North American environmental policies on the Canadian job market.

In this second panel discussion on November 3rd, entitled “Green Jobs Require Green Training,” Canadian experts in green jobs discuss the implications of a changing Canadian job market and look at how this transformation will affect regional economies as well as industries. The panellists are Wes Muir (director, corporate communications, Waste Management), Catherine Cottingham (executive director and CEO, Electricity Sector Council), Christopher Henderson (president, Lumos Energy), and Ken Bondy (national coordinator, Canadian Autoworkers).

After presenting their arguments, panellists field questions from attendees. Robert Hornung (president, Canadian Wind Energy Association) moderates the discussion.
