More About Administrator PBC

Passive Buildings Canada is a membership organization. It's is run by members for members. Ours is a group of passionate people saving the world one building at a time. The purpose of the website is to connect you across our country to others of the same mind. With our Gallery we want to promote all your good work and let others see the amazing things that you do. Please post any events or articles you think our members would appreciate. If you are interested in having PBC record or broadcast your event contact us and if we can we will help you spread the word! Use this platform to connect yourself to others and connect others to you. This is a compassionate site with no biases toward anything other than good building science and low energy buildings. Come with whatever energy modelling system you use. We do have minimum standards based on the energy modelling you do for your buildings. This is posted as an article on Passive Building Canada's Gallery. Passive Buildings Canada reserves the right to remove any information that does not meet our standards. All members have the right to be treated respectfully. Your membership will be revoked if you misuse your privileges.
