Presented by Graham Gilchrest on March 22, 2018
Background of Biological Carbon Canada
Mr. Chairman and Committee members, thank you for the opportunity to appear before you.
Our presentation is Biological Carbon Canada’s perspective on the questions before the Committee and will concentrate on adaptation and emission reduction strategies.
My name is Graham Gilchrist. I am a Professional Agrologist and the CEO of Biological Carbon Canada.
Biological Carbon Canada is an Albertan multi-sector non-profit society working to deliver real carbon reductions from Canadian forests, farms and ranches. We seek to be the conduit and facilitator in connecting business and research. Alberta has the innovation and the skill to scale what we know across Canada.
Our members have been working to reduce greenhouse gases since the Government of Alberta created the first North American compliance carbon pricing regulation and offset system in 2007.
