Event Overview

Euromoney Seminars and Project Finance Magazine proudly present the 3rd Annual Canadian Power Finance Conference, the leading event focusing on the financing of projects across Canada. Offering unparalleled thought leadership and networking opportunities with IPPs, developers, power utilities, private equity, lawyers, and international and Canadian banks; it is where the industry gathers to enhance market knowledge and debate all aspects of power finance needed to get deals done.

The market has undergone a year of exciting change. Public debate around the power supply mix has created new incentives for domestic and international players to develop and finance power and transmission projects across Canada’s provinces.

In the context of these changing conditions, it is more important than ever to be part of the debate. Join us in Toronto to benefit from: 
Real-time market intelligence from industry leaders, including the key off-takers/regulators from across Canada
Extensive networking opportunities with the leading decision-makers in the Canadian and international market

Expert insight into the important issues affecting the industry now, including bond-financing, transmission project development, and the market conditions impacting renewable generation
