Green building and IFAI Canada's manufacturer design and craftsmanship award winners for such well-known clients as Cirque de Soleil were the hot topics at IFAI Canada Expo 2008, held March 6-8 in Montreal.

The Expo hosted more than 350 attendees and 46 exhibitors; and offered education, networking, supplier exhibits and award programs.

Participants also attended an informational tour, starting at Brisebois Canvas Cleaning for a demonstration of cleaning techniques for fabric products. Members can now refer their clients in need of cleaning services to Brisebois.

The tour then moved to CTT Group testing facility, which offered insight into a seldom-seen aspect of the textile industry. CTT Group is a multi-service organization with technical, commercial and information services.

Keynote speaker Rodney Wilts, LLB, LEED AP, discussed green building and green products for the industry. He defined his program, the LOOP IRIS: Integrated Rating Indicator for Sustainability, a method to communicate clear and compelling progress on sustainability, and how to apply it to projects.

Wilts is a green building consultant and writer, and was recently invited to serve on the selection committee for the Canadian Government program Net Zero Energy Housing Initiative.

He previously served as an environmental lawyer for West Coast Environmental Law in Vancouver; and CEO and founder of Healthiest Home & Building Supplies, Canada's firstand largest green building store.
