Our mission is to make the International Passive House standard of building performance understood, achievable, and adopted by government, industry, professionals, and the public across Canada through education, advocacy, events, and building projects.
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 optimal way to build healthy, climate-resilient, affordable, and energy-efficient 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 instructors, volunteers and members across Canada. We work in collaboration with local governments and other organizations to transform our built environment.
