Home Energy Justice Forum

Presented by Ecotrust Canada

Rising energy costs, poor energy efficiency in homes, and a changing climate are having profound impacts on British Columbians’ health and safety. These issues are hitting lower-income households the hardest. It’s time to envision an end to energy insecurity in BC.

The Home Energy Justice Forum will be held at UBC Robson Square on xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) territories, in Vancouver on April 12, 2023. Pembina Institute buildings director Betsy Agar will be part of the featured panel.

This will be an all-day event involving both speakers and hands-on participation. Planned themes include the role and evolution of income-qualified retrofit programs, bill assistance programs, codes for existing buildings, and regulations for rental suites including the “right to cooling,” and how these differ in rural, remote, and Indigenous communities.
