Our mission is to create healthier, more comfortable buildings and contribute to a sustainable future by facilitating adoption of the Passive House building Standard (Passivhaus) across Canada.
Passive House Canada is a national non-profit professional association advocating for the Passive House high-performance building standard. Passive House is recognized internationally as the proven best way to build for comfort, affordability and energy efficiency of residential, institutional and commercial buildings, through all stages of design, construction, and livability.
We were founded in 2013 as the Canadian Passive House Institute West (CanPHI West) and became Passive House Canada | Maison Passive Canada in 2016 in response to demand from the building community to form a single national organization. We facilitate the adoption of the Passive House Standard through our advocacy work, education program, and nation-wide events.
Our head office is in Victoria, BC, with course conductors, volunteers and members across Canada. We are an affiliate of the International Passive House Association and a member of the North American Passive House Network, working in collaboration with local governments and other organizations to transform our built environment.
