The Canada Green Buildings Council estimates that Canada’s green buildings industry could support approximately 1.5 million direct jobs by 2030.
Today, we advanced the launch of the Canada #GreenBuildingsStrategy 🏘️
Our buildings are 🇨🇦's third-biggest source of #GHG emissions. Decarbonizing this sector is critical to meeting Canada’s 2030 climate target and achieving a #netzero economy by 2050.

The Government of Canada has launched the public engagement process for the Canada Green Buildings Strategy.
The Canada Green Buildings Strategy aims to mobilize national action to reduce emissions by 37% from 2005 by 2030 and to create a net-zero-emissions buildings sector by 2050. The strategy will focus on increasing the rate of building retrofits, ensuring buildings are resilient and net-zero-ready from the start, and on transforming space and water heating.
The Canada Green Buildings Council estimates that Canada’s green buildings industry could support approximately 1.5 million direct jobs by 2030, up from 462,000 today.
