WORKING TO MAKE EVERY BUILDING GREENER
Welcome to the seventh edition of the LEED® Canada Buildings-in-Review supplement, produced in partnership with SABMag. In this supplement, you will see some of the most innovative and well-designed LEED certified buildings in Canada. LEED certification provides a critical third-party seal of approval in the marketplace, and is the most important aspect in confirming that a building has gone through a rigorous process to verify their environmental performance targets.
Over the past decade, the CaGBC has worked with the industry to change the way that buildings are designed, built and operated making Canada home to the second-highest number of LEED certified buildings in the world with over 2,500 LEED certified projects, and well over 5,000 registered.
Last year was a milestone year for green buildings in Canada as Canada saw its first LEED v4-certifed project. We have also been working with the industry in order to take building performance to the next level. We also continue to expand our educational offerings and technical training via webinars and in-classroom sessions, and by bringing you the latest ideas, information and innovation at Building Lasting Change, our national conference and expo, this year in Toronto June 4 to 6, 2016.
The CaGBC is pleased to continue our work with SABMag in providing professionals and contractors, building owners and developers, and manufacturers and suppliers with the national exposure and recognition they deserve for being at the forefront of green building innovation.
Thank you for your commitment and support for this supplement and congratulations to all for your ongoing contributions toward making “Every Building Greener” in Canada.
