Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) and Green Business Certification Inc. (GBCI) recently signed an agreement in principle to form a Canadian joint venture called Green Business Certification Inc. Canada (GBCI Canada).
Beginning in early 2018, GBCI Canada will deliver all of the current and future GBCI offerings including certification and professional credentialing services for LEED v4, WELL, SITES, PEER, Parksmart, Zero Waste, and GRESB in Canada. The new organization is being established to more effectively support the Canadian market.
CaGBC will continue to support the Canadian green building industry, its members, and stakeholders through education and training, advocacy and research, business events, and a range of other activities. CaGBC will continue to provide certification reviews and market support for LEED Canada. It will also deliver and support its new Zero Carbon Building Standard.
CaGBC will continue to certify all LEED Canada projects. GBCI Canada will deliver LEED v4 and all GBCI rating systems via LEED Online and Arc, using Canadian staff to provide support.
