Since Vancouver is known for its beautiful natural landscape and the great outdoors, it is no surprise that INNOVATE™ Vancouver showcases plenty of Green-Tech companies such as Plastic BankRecycle SmartBoydel Wastewater TechnologiesPortable Electric, and Core Energy Recovery Solutions. These companies are doing amazing work to preserve our natural systems and reduce our carbon footprint.

For those of you wondering when you will receive your copies – The books are printed and en route. Unfortunately, we are still struggling with supply chain pressure due to COVID but we are expecting the books to be in Vancouver and ready for distribution at the end of April. We will be in touch closer to that time to arrange deliveries. Deliveries will be handled by GoFor Delivers – a proudly Canadian company that has perfected the art of cost-effective deliveries.

Arrangements for the Launch party will be communicated closer to that time as well–looking forward to seeing all of you there.
