Register a Project

Registering a LEED project is the first step toward earning LEED certification. Registration is administered by GBCI Canada through LEED Online, a platform used by project teams to coordinate and expedite the documentation and certification process.

For information on the many rating systems available, please see the LEED v4 Rating System Selection Guidance. Project teams have the opportunity to register for LEED v4, or for the newest version, LEED v4.1 released in Beta. Read more about LEED v4.1 here.

Organizations that are CaGBC Specialist Members benefit from reduced registration and certification fees. Not a member? Become one today.

LEED for Homes and Midrise projects must contact a Provider prior to registration; Providers guide the project through the process of seeking certification and provide on-site inspections.

To register a project for the LEED for Neighborhood Development rating system, please contact GBCI Canada customer service directly at or 1-866-941-1184.

Be sure your project meets the Minimum Program Requirements prior to registration. Projects pursuing LEED v4 certification must:

  • Be in a permanent location on existing land
  • Use reasonable LEED boundaries
  • Comply with project size requirements

Visit the LEED Credit Library to read the specifics on Minimum Program Requirements.
