Many Canadians don't realize that one of the most significant ways they can make a positive impact on the environment and their overall health is by living in a greener home. Green homes use less energy, water and natural resources, create less waste, and have better indoor air quality and temperature regulation – making them more affordable, durable, comfortable and safe.

In this section, you'll read case studies about a variety of green homes – from LEED certified new builds and renovated spaces – to the cutting-edge design and efficiency of the Passive House standard. You'll also learn how small and large commercial developers are embracing the benefits of green homes, including: higher lease and rental rates, an increase in sales appeal and marketability, and the knowledge that they are contributing to happier, healthier homeowners.
