Did you know that Canada is a global leader in green building with the highest number of LEED buildings per capita in the world? Did you also know that 30 per cent of recently surveyed Canadian contractors say there is a lack of Canadian products or solutions available when trying to build green?
A new CaGBC and Delphi report, titled Green Building in Canada: Assessing the Market Impacts & Opportunities, details the wide economic impact that the green building industry has had in Canada over the past decade. For instance, market penetration of LEED certified buildings in Canada has grown from 1.25% and 4.6% across commercial and institutional classes for the period of 2004-2009, to 22.14% and 29.96%, respectively, by 2014 - a clear indication of where the industry is headed.

Manufacturers and suppliers who want to take advantage of this growing market need access to education and information to establish a foothold in green building.
