Passive House training reaches northeastern B.C. communities

About 125 people took part in our northeastern B.C. outreach and training events in November. Almost 30 people and 50 people participated in our introductory courses in Prince George and Fort St. John, respectively, to learn about better ways to build. The City of Prince George sent a municipal planner seeking information on how to make the city’s planned fire station Passive House.


Thank you to our IIDEX exhibitors and sponsors

 

Building a Passive House takes a community, and bringing information about the benefits of high-performance buildings to the design and construction industry requires the support and advocacy of industry partners.

Passive House Canada thanks the following companies for exhibiting at the Passive House Pavilion or sponsoring the Passive House Canada events at IIDEX Toronto.
