Canadian Brownfields Network
Acronym: CBN

Description: The Canadian Brownfields Network (CBN) is a National Network for Brownfield Practitioners and Stakeholders. The CBN was launched in March 2004 by OCETA, EcoLog and the Canadian Urban Institute. The CBN provides a national voice for brownfields redevelopment and sustainable urban revitalization in Canada. The CBN is uniquely positioned as the enabling mechanism to implement the National Round Table on the Environment and Economy recommendations to accelerate brownfield redevelopment activities across Canada. The mandate of the CBN is to raise awareness of the economic, environmental and social benefits, and to transform the market through outreach and capacity-building initiatives. Significant progress has been made by the CBN since its inception. Highlights include: the formation of a CBN Advisory Panel comprised of a distinguished group of experts from across Canada; strategic alliances with industry to create market credibility; delivery of high profile conferences and workshops; a brownfields redevelopment toolbox; and an initial membership base of more than 200 practitioners and stakeholders. CBN members are encouraged to communicate their ideas on brownfield issues through the Brownfields Forum. Discussion, question and answers can be address to all members, Advisory Panel members, CBN executives and government bodies.
