Advocacy

A strong voice for green building

CAGBC acts as the voice of green building in Canada. As the only national organization dedicated to green building, CAGBC members represent a broad cross-section of the industry. Together, we increase awareness of green buildings as a proven solution for emissions reductions and greater sustainability.

CAGBC’s advocacy team works at federal, provincial, and municipal levels to provide recommendations and insights that encourage the adoption of green building policies. CAGBC has the relationships needed to bring stakeholders together to advance the research, projects, and partnerships that shape Canadian regulations and programs.
