The CaGBC is Canada’s only member-based organization that is purely dedicated to the advancement of green building across the country. Together, with our members here in the Atlantic provinces, and the vast network of industry professionals associated with our other six Chapters across the country, we can all play a vital role in the advancement and successful transformation of Canada’s built environment.

In addition to the numerous benefits associated with membership such as discounts on education and events, access to information and Canada’s largest network of green building professionals, your membership plays a valuable role in the Council’s advocacy work and development and deployment of green building education.

NEW! It is easier than ever before for individuals to get involved with the green building industry at the local level. Any employee of a CaGBC member company is entitled to a FREE Chapter membership.

If you are not an employee of a CaGBC member company you can join the Atlantic Chapter for just $100. There’s no better way to connect with the industry and support green building in Canada than by becoming an actively involved member.
