2019 Call for Speakers Now Open! Deadline to submit - February 8, 2019

Each year the Canadian Boiler Society calls on it members and leaders to come together for a day of informative sessions and networking. In 2018, we had a very successful round of Education Days. Each session drew 25-35 attendees from various boiler manufactures, suppliers to the industry, consultants and end users, including our first event in Atlantic Canada.

We are looking forward to a continued success in 2019 and are eager to select qualified speakers to help inform our current and soon to be members on the latest innovations and pertinent topics that matter to CBS members.
