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.
