BLOOM Winding Down Operations

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, it is with regret that I announce that BLOOM is winding down its operations in April 2019.

Hard to believe we’ve been around since 1993, when we first started and were known as OCETA.

It’s been a pleasure to meet with and work with so many interesting and talented people and organizations over the years.

Thank you to our government funders at the federal and Ontario levels, as well as the broad mix of stakeholders that actively participated in and supported our programs and projects.

Also, a thank you to those organizations that provided key accounting, tax, financial, human resource and legal corporate services to BLOOM (namely BDO, RBC and McMillan).

We are very proud of our many accomplishments – and are pleased that part of BLOOM’s legacy will live on.

We have transferred our award-winning ‘Water & Beer’ and ‘Water & Wine’ online platforms to the River Institute based in Cornwall, Ontario.  They will host these free resources on their websites. Watch for further announcements from them.  The contact person for these resources is Natasha Pozega (npozega@riverinstitute.ca).

It has been a nice run, but as the saying goes, it is now time to move on.

All the best in your future endeavours – and transitioning to a low carbon, sustainable economy!
