Association News: AAMA webinar to cover Energy Code requirements in Canada, Sept. 19
Posted on September 7th, 2017 by Heather West
The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) is hosting a webinar that will cover the Canadian Energy Codes and Energy Acts. On Sept. 19, Jeff Baker, president of WESTLab Canada and technical consultant for Fenestration Canada, will review a new proposal from Natural Resources Canada to transform the residential window market in Canada. The webinar is open to all in the industry.
The current and recently announced updates to provincial codes in Canada are aggressive for fenestration products, but they are mild compared to the long-term changes being proposed by Natural Resources Canada in their federal regulations, according to Baker.
"Manufacturers selling in the Canadian market should not miss this opportunity to hear the latest provincial and federal energy code and energy act details in Canada," says AAMA Regulatory Affairs Manager Diana Hanson who will serve as moderator for the online session. Register today for this complimentary presentation, on Tues., Sept. 19 from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Eastern.
