Event Space Rental

Sustainability

Evergreen Brick Works was transformed from a collection of deteriorating heritage buildings into a globally recognized showcase for green design and urban sustainability. Its flagship event spaces are housed in the Centre for Green Cities, a LEED Platinum certified building.

Our events team encourages and supports event organizers to make environmentally sound choices in the planning and execution of events onsite. We will happily consult with you on what you can do to create an event that is both memorable and sustainable.

When not being used for events, Evergreen Brick Works welcomes visitors of all ages to participate in myriad activities, workshops and community festivals. It offers a full suite of programs that cover subjects including ecology, play, food, design, urban planning, technology and the arts. Evergreen Brick Works is owned and operated as a social enterprise by Evergreen, a national not-for-profit that has designed and delivered programs which help Canadians live, work and play sustainably since 1991.

All proceeds from event space rentals go to support Evergreen’s efforts to create greener, more sustainable cities.

Catering

Evergreen supports sustainable food communities, which includes food producers and artisans that produce products that support our local farmlands, naturally raise farm animals, the non-use of genetically modified materials. Evergreen expects food vendors to source products that are socially conscious, economically fair and environmentally responsible.

All food and beverage requirements for catering will be managed by an Evergreen Event Manager and will adhere to the Evergreen Food and Beverage Policies.
