Green Building Council New LEED Standards


The Canada Green Building Council is about to release the LEED Canada for New Construction and Major Renovations and LEED Canada Core and Shell Development. These updated rating systems include current reference standards, re-weighted credits, and better credit compliance pathways.

LEED Canada NC 2009 will allow for faster review of applications and a streamlined certification process.
Registration for new projects will open on June 21, 2010. Projects registered with the CaGBC before June 21 will have the option to continue certification under LEED Canada NC 1.0 or opt into the new LEED Canada NC 2009 system. Reference guides for the new systems will be available to order at the national conference starting June 9th, 2010.
