Welcome!

Here at Passive Buildings Canada we are passionate about the Passive House standard of low carbon, energy efficient buildings. We are a non-profit organization that aims to grow the low-energy-building movement and build a more sustainable, healthy Canada, and planet. Our vision is that all Canadian buildings will be durable, energy efficient and comfortable through the use of passive house principles.

Passive Buildings Canada shares passive house knowledge and experience to assist Canadians in reducing building energy consumption, and carbon emissions. We value open, honest, and respectful discourses informed by rigorous, practical building science and seek to connect with other organizations to strengthen the low-energy building movement. We are a volunteer organization by passive house enthusiasts for passive house enthusiasts.

You can support our work, get involved, (and get some great perks) by becoming a member!

What's a Passive House?

If you have 90 seconds, Hans-Jörn Eich does a great job of explaining the basics of the passive house building philosophy!
