Government procurement in Canada is an annual $200 Billion dollar marketplace. Public Services and Procurement Canada's (PSPC) Office of Small and Medium Enterprises (OSME) Ontario Region is hosting its 6th annual Doing Business with Government Information Clinic to help you in your procurement journey. In our effort to modernize federal   procurement  and make it more inclusive and open OSME is looking at innovative ways in achieving this. The event theme or focus for some components will be on Indigenous and social procurement, however, all businesses are invited to attend, become informed and learn about how various levels of government procure for their organizations. Join us virtually to meet with officials and get more involved in making them your customer.  You can also hear about what non-procurement support services are available to help your business grow.

    Energy modelling is the software used to anayze and optimize Energy modelling is the software used to analyze and optimize the energy characteristics of buildings.

    HOT2000 is an energy modelling system developed by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) specifically for analysis of new single-family homes.

    Since it developed the pioneering its RETScreen energy modelling software in 1998 NRCan has been the global leader in this field.

    HOT2000 addresses the energy modelling performance requirements of SB12, where SB stands for Sustainable Buildings, an annex to Part 9 of the Ontario Building Code, the section of OBC devoted to the construction of new single-family homes

    HOT2000 models are developed by architects, HVAC designers and constructor, consulting engineers and energy consultants who have been engaged for the new development project. This course is designed for professionals from these areas.

    This one-day introductory class provides a basic introduction to the use and application HOT2000 to new homes. In addition, the training will focus on the multiple options permitted in order to comply with the SB12 including both the performance path and calculated cost savings. The class will provide students with a deeper understanding of OBC SB12 requirements and the fundamentals about the general mode of HOT2000 energy simulation.

    This class will be taught by Jack Zhou, a veteran energy modeler who has a energy modelling consulting firm, and has provided expert advice to the energy modeling sector for many years. Full Biography

    The federal government is seeking the training of up to 2,000 trained EnerGuide Energy Advisors to perform the mandatory home energy inspections required for the new Canada Greener Homes Grant program. This is the course to prepare aspiring Energy Advisors to prepare them for the first rigorous Natural Resources Canada test, the Foundation Level Exam. This is a huge career opportunity for future EnerGuide Energy Advisors.

    “The Foundation Level exam assesses foundational competencies such as numeracy, low-rise housing construction and renovation, building envelope, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, building science principles and the house-as-a-system concept.” Quote from Natural Resources Canada

    The main objective of this course is to increase the chance of the participants in passing the EnerGuide Rating System Foundation Level Exam (V15). With over 200 learning objectives in this course, it provides a solid knowledge foundation for participants who will also be challenging the EnerGuide Rating System Energy Advisor Exam. This exam consists 150 multiple choice questions with a passing mark of 75% or higher. Participants have a maximum of 3 hours to complete the exam in a recognized exam centre approved by Natural Resources Canada.
