Welcome to the LEED® Canada Buildings-in-Review Supplement, the fifth in an annual series produced with SABMag. We work with SABMag on this publication each year because it is a great way of recognizing green building innovation through the lens of LEED certified buildings in Canada.
WORKING TO MAKE EVERY BUILDING GREENER
I am happy to say that in 2013 there were more Canadian projects certified LEED than in any prior year: a total of 574. This brought the total number of projects certified in Canada to 1,484. In addition, 598 projects registered to pursue certification, bringing the total registered and certified projects to 4,685.
We should all be proud of how far we’ve come over the past decade and be excited about where we are headed next. With the release of LEED v4 in North America and the official launch in Canada at the CaGBC’s Building Lasting Change conference in June, we are poised to take green building performance to the next level.
The CaGBC is pleased to work with SABMag to give professionals and contractors, building owners and developers, and manufacturers and suppliers the national exposure and recognition they deserve for being at the forefront of green building innovation. Thank you to those who have participated in this supplement, and congratulations on contributing to a greener, healthier and more prosperous Canada.
