Fenestration Canada: We’re heading for the mountains

Spring Conference 2024 figures to be extra special.

April 23, 2024  By Laine Atkins

Fenestration Canada will welcome the industry to the Kananaskis Mountain Lodge in Alberta for this year’s Spring Conference, May 28 to 31. Our Spring Conference is an event not to be missed, including quality and informative education sessions; the President’s Dinner; a Suppliers Showcase; offsite events and the Extended Experience. 

Our Suppliers Showcase will take place during the conference where attendees can interact with different suppliers to discuss products and services. We have taken attendee feedback and have added in more time for these conversations.

This year’s education content will include the Farnsworth Group who will speak on the Fenestration Canada Canadian Fenestration Market Study. Brad Farnsworth will be presenting a sneak peek at the results from the Market Study project as well as present and discuss current Canadian economic fundamentals. This survey will be available for members in both English and French and will be an important piece of documentation for the Canadian fenestration industry. 

Terry Adamson, Fenestration Canada technical director, will lead an update session on technical activities from this past year. Topics will include VOC regulations, the Canadian Plastics Registry, the Fenestration Canada installer training program, operable guards changes and more.


Jacob Carter, director of government affairs with the U.S. Window and Door Manufacturers Association, will be presenting U.S. regulations on PFAS (per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances) with a peek at how Canada is responding north of the border. 

Adam Buist from Natural Resources Canada will provide an update on their activities
regarding the Canadian fenestration industry.
The update will include a review of recent projects as well as a look into what the future holds for fenestration performance criteria.

A full list of our education sessions can be found on our website at fenestrationcanada.ca/spring24.

As well as our education lineup, we have some great events planned for attendees including our President’s Dinner which kicks off the conference on the 28th. This evening honours the recipient of our prestigious President’s Award and provides some great networking opportunities. 

On May 29, guests should get ready for an evening at Boundary Ranch. Ideally located in the spectacular natural beauty of Kananaskis Valley, Boundary Ranch is the perfect setting to discover the authentic cowboy experience and Western hospitality. The evening will include ranch games, horse-drawn carriage rides, a barbeque dinner and a local band to dance the night away!

On May 31 we welcome those who are staying for the Extended Experience to join us at the Kananaskis Country Golf Club including 18 holes on this scenic course. The day includes transportation to and from the course, a buffet breakfast, 18 holes of golf on an amazing course in the mountains and a barbeque steak dinner.

And for those who prefer not to golf, we have arranged a day at the spa at Kananaskis Mountain lodge’s Nordic spa. This option includes Nordic Spa access, a lunch voucher and then transportation to meet the group at the golf course for dinner. 

We invite you to view the schedule for more information and to register online at fenestrationcanada.ca/spring24.
