Fenestration Canada: Our ticket to opportunity

WinDoor can get you ready for the coming rush of demand.

October 19, 2023  By Rich Porayko

Each year, Canada welcomes record new permanent residents while simultaneously undergoing a housing crisis. In order to meet the increasing demand for housing, Canada will need to construct approximately 5.8 million new homes by 2030. This staggering number equates to around 830,000 new houses per year, resulting in a 40-percent surge in the current housing supply, as reported by Royal Bank. Back in 1972, Canada constructed a whopping 232,200 new homes. Fast forward to 2022, even with a larger population, only 219,500 homes managed to hit the market.

There is immense pressure on municipal, provincial and federal governments to address the urgent need for housing. Despite price fluctuations, the constant demand for housing in Canada remains unchanged. With a tight labour pool inching towards retirement combined with increasingly stringent energy codes, there has never been a better time for the fenestration industry to attend Fenestration Canada’s WinDoor.

WinDoor is Canada’s premier fenestration industry event showcasing the best of the window and door industry, attracting manufacturers, retailers, suppliers and other industry professionals from all over the world. There, you can embrace a world of quality fenestration education, cultivate powerful relationships and networks, discover the latest products, services, technology and equipment, stay informed about industry trends, and find lucrative business opportunities. It’s a chance to learn more about the latest automation technologies and products available. Not only will you be able to speak directly with vendors who specialize in window and door equipment, but WinDoor also offers a chance to meet other fenestration professionals and see what solutions they have adopted.  

WinDoor allows business owners to stay up to date on industry developments in their province and find the best solution for their needs. With a vast array of solutions presented throughout the two-day event, it is helpful in comparing different options side-by-side to find the best fit. 


Networking is another key benefit of attending WinDoor. You’ll have the chance to meet industry professionals and build relationships that can help your business over time.
