Our annual supplement of LEED-certified buildings
Welcome to the sixth 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 seal of approval in the marketplace knowing that these buildings have gone through a rigorous process to verify their environmental performance targets.
By Thomas Mueller, President and CEO, CaGBC
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 2,000 LEED certified projects, and more than 5,000 registered.
Last year was a milestone year for green buildings in Canada as CaGBC introduced LEED v4 to take performance to the next level. We worked with stakeholders providing guidance and technical input to ensure the successful introduction of the new rating system. CaGBC will provide full certification and technical support for LEED v4 projects using LEED On-line. We are also offering technical training and educational via the web, in classroom sessions and at the national conference and expo from June 2-4, 2015.
The CaGBC is pleased to work with SABMag to provide 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.
