The LEED Strategic Practices (LSP) Program is an affordable, 7 course certificate program that is offered in an engaging, user-friendly online format and is instructed by leading Canadian industry experts. Participants, who range from young professionals, post-secondary school students and recent graduates, work on actual LEED projects to gain real project experience. Graduates will possess the skills and knowledge required to begin working on LEED projects immediately after completing the program.

 Why LEED?

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design® (LEED) is a rating system that is recognized as the international mark of excellence for green building in over 160 countries. Since 2002, the Canada Green Building Council® (CaGBC) and LEED Canada have been redefining the buildings and communities where Canadians live, work and learn.

Job growth in green building

In 2014, the green building industry employed 297,890 direct full-time workers. This represents more Canadians employed in green building than in the forestry, oil and gas, and mining industries combined.
