Recertification

LEED Recertification is a simple, cost-effective way of verifying and improving performance while enhancing asset values and protecting your investments in sustainability.

Recertification is available to all occupied buildings that have achieved LEED certification — including any version of BD+C and ID+C. Simply use 12 months of performance data as your documentation and earn recertification to the newest version of LEED O+M, valid for 3 years.

The whole process is managed within Arc, a state-of-the-art platform designed to help you collect, manage and benchmark building data so you can improve sustainability performance.

Concerned about the impacts of COVID-19 on building occupancy and performance? Allowances and guidance ensure there is a path to certification for every project!

Getting started

Start working on your project today:

  1. Find your project in LEED Online and choose “Recertification” to access your profile in Arc. LEED Canada certified projects must complete this form to qualify for recertification.
  2. Collect and submit the last 12 months of data across the five performance categories.
  3. Your performance scores will calculate automatically and determine your LEED points.
  4. You can continue to work on improving your building’s performance and update your data as often as you need to get improved performance scores and LEED points.
  5. Submit your project for review and pay the certification fees.
  6. CAGBC will perform a recertification review and award a maximum of 100 LEED points.
