    The huge scale of environmental and social challenges facing Canada means that young professionals will need to acquire new knowledge and new skills if the country is to transition effectively to a low-carbon economy. 

    Working with diverse partners across business, government, civil society, and post secondary education, the Academy for Sustainable Innovation aims to promote and develop pathways that will answer those needs.
