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.
