Summer 2023

  28 June 2023

In this issue, we are covering new incentives and funding programs and upcoming education opportunities related to sustainability and climate change adaptation.

  • Funding for Deep Energy Retrofits
    CMHC’s Canada Greener Affordable Housing program focuses on supporting deep energy retrofits for existing multi-unit residential buildings, with the goal of achieving near net zero emissions.
  • Energy Use Tracking Incentives
    Aiming for a more sustainable future for your co-op? Understand your energy use and the impact of changes with energy benchmarking. Co-ops that are Vancity members may also be eligible for financial incentives (while funds last).
  • Fire Safety & Prevention
    Join us for an upcoming information session on fire safety and prevention with the Vancouver Fire Department on July 27! This webinar is open to all CHF BC members.
  • Energy Conservation & Heat Events
    Non-profit housing co-ops can access free home energy assessments and energy-saving upgrades through the Energy Conservation Assistance Program. The Province is providing additional funding that could allow co-op members to access portable air conditioners through ECAP. For updates and details, contact It’s On Electric.
