The Single Building stream of the BOMA BEST® Sustainable Buildings program is designed for those who prefer to pay a one-time fee for a three year certification. Upon expiry of the building, applicants will be required to register anew, paying a new fee, in order to obtain a recertification.
Once certified, applicants are granted continuous access to the BOMA BEST® Online Portal. Here you can update your monthly utility data to help track energy and water performance over time, as well as update your questionnaire when improvements are made to the building to see how this may affect your score upon recertification.
This program is based on an online application via the BOMA BEST® Online Portal and is administered by the Local Association (i.e. invoicing and verification scheduling). Multiple buildings can be registered via the Single Buildings stream. All asset classes are eligible to participate: Office, Enclosed Shopping Centre, Light Industrial, Open Air Retail, Universal buildings, Multi-Unit Residential Buildings and Health Care Facilities.
The Portfolio Program stream of the BOMA BEST® Sustainable Buildings program is designed for applicants who prefer to pay an annual fee for ongoing certification. This stream was developed to provide a cost-effective yet rigorous method for continuous BOMA BEST® certifications for portfolios of properties at all levels of certification.
Participants in the Portfolio Program are invoiced annually. Certification never expires provided verification is successful and the annual fee is received. Verification occurs on an annual basis. Buildings may be added or removed from the Portfolio as needed.
This stream is based on an online application via the BOMA BEST® Online Portal and is administered by BOMA Canada (i.e. invoicing and verification scheduling). All asset classes are eligible to participate: Office, Enclosed Shopping Centre, Light Industrial, Open Air Retail, Universal buildings, Multi-Unit Residential Buildings and Health Care Facilities.

For those companies or organizations that have a green mandate BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association) Canada is proud to introduce BOMA BEST® Sustainable Workplaces, the perfect tool to lead you and your organization to an environmentally sustainable workplace.
Not only will BOMA BEST® Sustainable Workplaces validate what you’ve already done, it will give you a road map to improve key performance indicators. The standardized framework requires you to benchmark, monitor and set goals in seven areas that you typically have some measure of control over: energy, water, waste, e-waste, construction and renovation, procurement practices, business and employee travel and indoor air quality.
