SMARTNet December Newsletter

December is here and the holiday season is upon us. We want to take this time to wish you and yours a wonderful holiday and to update you on what SMARTNet Alliance has been up to this past month. Just like St. Nick up in the North Pole, we have been hard at work supporting Ottawa’s sustainable initiatives and local entrepreneurs.
We can't wait for 2019 to continue in helping to build the sustainable economy in Ottawa and beyond. There are some exciting events to kick off a sustainable new year in January. Be sure to check out the SMARTNet Sustainable Events Spotlight below to find out more. 
SMARTNet Year in Review

This was another year of growth and development at SMARTNet Alliance, where staff and stakeholders worked together to help advance the transition to Canada’s sustainable economy. Through events such as Green Energy Doors OpenOld Home Earth Day, the monthly Green Drinks series, and various member events we were able to grow awareness around sustainability and build demand in several key sectors. We continue to work towards our ultimate goal of scaling up the sustainable economy and building capacity for future projects and endeavors. By working with like minded businesses and organizations, we were able to advance our shared principles and despite setbacks on the political landscape, SMARTNet Alliance has lead the way as a green economy steward in and around the Ottawa area.

In May, we moved into our new offices at WorkAway Offices, a co-sharing space located at 900 Lady Ellen Place in Ottawa - doesn’t that sound just so fancy!  It’s a great location with boardrooms, a member’s area and offices to meet every need. All in all a very exciting year!

We want to wish you an incredible holiday season with your family, friends and we are excited to continue our efforts in 2019 to scale up, build capacity and ultimately shift Canada’s economy to a more robust and sustainable one.

Happy Holidays from SmartNet Alliance,

Joe, Raymonde & Nick
