NRCan Award – Headed Towards Net-Zero

In November of 2016, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) announced the plan to launch a new National High-Performance Building Challenge to help bring the Canadian building market closer to a net-zero energy performance ideal. A national RFP was issued soliciting interested parties to create and manage this ambitious program.

After an extensive search, we are pleased to announce that BOMA Canada, in partnership with Prism Engineering, was chosen and the Challenge is expected to be officially launched by Spring of 2017.

The challenge intends to recognize the leadership of owners, developers, designers and/or managers of buildings who demonstrate significant progress along the path towards net-zero performance. This is ultimately expected to help prepare the building market for the 2030 adoption of net-zero ready energy codes, as proposed in the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change. BOMA Canada’s winning entry envisions three awards, which would be presented at our annual TOBY Gala at BOMEX each September: (a) Best in Class/Net Zero, (b) Most Improved and (C) Innovation.
