Actual Media to Host Excess Soils Symposium

The team from Actual Media is proud to announce that it will be the new event host and organizer of the annual Excess Soils Symposium. The event, previously organized by the Canadian Urban Institute, will now be a part of Actual’s environment industry content portfolio.

The annual event has welcomed over 250 people to venues around the Greater Toronto Area for the past several years to discuss important issues surrounding the disposal of excess construction soils from jobsites throughout Toronto. Last year’s event featured a capacity crowd packed into the main ballroom at the Deer Creek Golf and Banquet Facility in Ajax, Ont.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event will be held virtually, with a half-day presentation planned. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, December 8th from 1:00p.m. to 4:30p.m. EST.
