Federal government offers Local Energy Efficiency Partnerships program

The housing sector in Canada provides significant potential for the reduction of the country’s energy footprint and delivering other benefits to Canadians. To accelerate energy-efficient construction, Natural Resources Canada provides a program to enable builders to reduce their time and risk finding and trying innovations that can help them build higher-performance homes better, faster and more affordably.

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.
