Canada Green Building Council Reaches its 5000th LEED Registration

OTTAWA — The Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) has reached a major milestone in the evolution of green building in Canada with the 5000th registered project for LEED certification in Canada. This comes on the heels of a strong third quarter of 2014 that saw 132 registrations and 117 certifications between July 1 and September 30, 2014. This brings the total number of LEED certified projects in Canada to 1878. A searchable LEED project database with further detail, including project scorecards and photos can be viewed on the CaGBC LEED Project Profiles webpage.

Year to date totals by LEED certification level (up to September 30, 2014) are as follows:
•    103 LEED Certified
•    126 LEED Silver
•    124 LEED Gold
•    22 LEED Platinum

"The registration of our 5000th project is a significant milestone in the history of the CaGBC and the green building movement in Canada. It reflects a level of progress toward our mission to transform buildings and cities with significantly lower environmental footprints and better quality of life that is heartening to everyone who has contributed to this success," says Thomas Mueller, President and CEO of the Council.
"Five thousand registered projects demonstrate that the market is maturing: LEED is the standard of choice and core business for many building owners, developers and practitioners. It also proves that green buildings are seen as an effective response to climate change and environmental degradation as a whole. Our work is far from over, but the future of green building in Canada certainly looks bright."
