Canada’s Net-Zero Forum 2024: Accelerating Net-Zero Pathways

On May 14 and 15, 2024, the Transition Accelerator is gathering leaders from industry, government, academia, and beyond for Canada’s Net-Zero Forum, a unique event that presents a strategic, integrated, whole-of-society view of potential net-zero solutions.

Through two days of engaging, interactive sessions, we’re equipping participants with the latest understanding of what drives large-scale transitions, plus a practical and powerful framework for identifying the transition pathways that will drive better investment decisions, smarter policies, and equip Canada to succeed in emerging global value chains. We want you to join us! 

Event Summary

The world has agreed to an ambitious and essential goal: net-zero emissions by 2050. With the adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015, the era of emissions reduction came to an end. It’s been replaced by the need to eliminate net emissions—a goal that calls for imagining new energy systems, new value chains, and new ways to succeed in the global economy. 

The world’s major economies are now aggressively positioning themselves to create the sectors that will compete and win economically in a net-zero world. Combatting climate change is no longer just about reducing emissions, it has become a dominant global competitiveness driver, with companies and sectors vying to create net-zero products, services, and supply chains. 

Success in this emerging economy will require more than just understanding individual sectors. It’s time to break down the silos and take a critical look at our net-zero systems as a whole. 

On May 14 and 15, 2024, we will be gathering 250 leaders from industry, government, academia, indigenous interests and beyond at Toronto’s Westin Harbour Castle for a unique in-person event that will bring together the complex threads of Canada’s emissions reduction/competitiveness journey to present an integrated, strategically focused, and whole-of-society view of potential net-zero solutions. 

The Forum will use engaging, highly interactive sessions to ensure participants will leave the event with as good an understanding as anyone in the country of how large-scale transitions work, and how to identify and create practical transition pathways to a competitive Canadian net-zero economy.

For our inaugural Forum, we’re focusing on integrating these five areas:

Forum Attendees will gain

  • Awareness of how transitions have happened in the past, and how we can use this experience to avoid past mistakes and speed progress.
  • Opportunities to connect with other leaders from across sectors and across Canada.
  • Knowledge about how other jurisdictions are approaching similar challenges.
  • A practical, powerful approach to establishing strategic priorities and developing credible transition pathways based on the latest understanding of large-scale transitions and solutions.
  • Expertise in applying the latest net-zero pathways decision support tools.
  • A framework to make strategic investment decisions
  • The ability to create more effective policies that will work in the real world.
  • Positioning to lead their organization’s development of an emissions reduction plan aligned with a net-zero outcome.
  • Intelligence to help position their organization to succeed in new global net-zero value chains.


It’s time to focus diffuse efforts, integrate siloed approaches, and position Canada to win in the future. It’s time for Canada’s Net-Zero Forum.
