The Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC) believes the current health crisis has precipitated what could be the tipping point needed to transition Canada toward a sustainable and low-carbon economy.

The CaGBC provided its perspective to key federal ministers in a document entitled, Ready, set, grow: How the green building industry can re-ignite Canada’s economy.

The brief provides guidance on how strategic investment in green building could play a significant role in re-igniting Canada’s economy while also helping the country meet its climate goals.

The recommendations target three areas of investment: workplace training and skills development; removing barriers and creating deep energy retrofit incentives; and shifting the industry to zero carbon building.
