A Passive House Certification is internationally recognized as the highest level of building efficiency through all stages of design, construction and livability. Within the BC Building Code, homeowners can voluntarily adopt the Passive House Standard to achieve and exceed the highest step levels of the BC Energy Step Code.

To start the certification process you will need to engage a Passive Certifier approved by the Passive House Institute, ideally at the beginning of a new construction project. To find a Passive House Professional or learn more about where to get started, contact Passive House Canada.
