UPDATED November 24, 2016

Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) plans to launch a National High-Performance Building Challenge to help bring the Canadian building market closer to a net-zero energy performance ideal. According to Ian Meredith, program development manager-buildings and industry division, Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE), a specific launch date for the Challenge has not been set as yet, but OEE expects it to occur in mid to late spring of 2017.

NRCan is seeking a leading building industry association and/or organization to collaborate with on this project and has launched a Call for Proposals process in order to solicit interest from appropriate organizations. The deadline for submissions is December 14, 2016. Interested organizations should e-mail info.services@nrcan-rncan.gc.ca for more information.

NRCan’s building challenge will recognize the builders and designers who demonstrate significant progress toward net-zero energy performance in new building designs in the commercial, institutional and high-rise residential sectors.
