Since 2002, CaGBC and its members have made substantial inroads in the proliferation of green buildings across Canada. Fourteen years later, over 34 million square meters have been certified to the LEED® green building rating system in Canada.

The federal government, provinces and many cities have adopted green building policies, and the commercial real estate sector has taken a leadership role in greening office space from coast to coast. But there is more work to be done.

As the only national organization dedicated to green building, the CaGBC represents a broad cross-section
of the industry.

We are well-positioned as the voice of the green building sector to play a catalyzing role in advancing national initiatives, new approaches, partnerships and commitments to see significant advancement in the performance of the built environment.
