Biomass is Mainstream: The Next 25 Years: Opportunity and Innovation


The Wood Pellet Association of Canada Conference and AGM is Canada’s largest gathering of the Canadian wood pellet industry.

Each year, the event attracts hundreds of wood pellet, biomass and bioenergy professionals from across the country, as well the U.S., Europe and Asia, to discuss the issues that are having an impact on the industry here in Canada.

The WPAC Conference and AGM is your opportunity to learn about the most important issues from industry experts around the globe.



2022 Conference Huge Success

WPAC annual conference sheds light on pellet industry’s triumphs, challenges

Canada’s wood pellet industry covered a lot of ground at their first in-person gathering in years. Around 200 industry insiders gathered for the Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC) conference in Vancouver in September 2022 to discuss the state of bioenergy and its future potential.

Speakers from coast to coast assembled to tackle questions surrounding fibre supply security, local economic development, public perceptions, climate change mitigation, and plant safety. You can see the presentations here.


  • Anyone involved, or interested in, the Canadian wood pellet industry, including current biomass industry executives, educators, researchers, government officials, logistics personnel and equipment manufacturers.

We hope you’ll join us in Ottawa, Sept 19-20, 2023!
