Canada is at the ReBuild Ukraine Conference and Trade Show in Warsaw, Poland
Support Ukraine. Support Canadian businesses.
Canada’s private sector is participating in the ReBuild Ukraine Conference and Trade Show in Warsaw, Poland, November 14–15, 2023.
According to World Bank estimates from March 2023, the cost of reconstruction and recovery in Ukraine is expected to be over U.S. $411 billion during the next decade, making this one of the largest construction efforts in the world. Ukraine has indicated they wish to “build back better” through green technology and innovative solutions.
Canada can share its expertise to help Ukraine build back better. As a global leader in energy production, Canada has experience in multiple areas of power generation, including hydro, solar, wind, oil and natural gas, nuclear, energy storage, energy efficiency, smart technologies and decentralized systems. Supported by a robust innovation ecosystem, groundbreaking Canadian technologies and solutions have helped address energy challenges globally. Canadian companies can help across a wide range of areas, including natural gas production, the adoption of renewable energy and distributed energy resources and large-scale energy generation projects.
The ReBuild Ukraine Conference and Trade Show is targeted at a variety of stakeholders, including:
- Housing and Architecture
- Water and wastewater
