Boots On The Ground

Boots On The Ground is a dynamic conference series that brings together leaders from the design and construction fields to share ideas, network, and learn about products, and new solutions to get the job done. Boots on the Ground was founded by the BlueGreen Group in 2013 who passed the torch to Passive Buildings Canada in 2018. Each event features a mini-trade show made up exclusively of sponsors, food and drink, and one hour of networking time before and after the presentations. The presentations feature three talks, each presentation a maximum of 20 minutes with no Q&A (we encourage questions during networking). We aim to have one speaker be a builder and one a designer.


With restrictions on gatherings due to COVID we are currently exploring virtual event options.

Recorded Talks
