Natural Resources Canada - Building Energy Code Compliance Study
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) is conducting a Canada-wide study to collect information about energy code compliance for buildings. Targeted respondent groups are industry professionals, practitioners, and building officials who have experience within the last five years meeting or enforcing energy code for Part 3 buildings. In addition to indicating the current level of compliance with energy requirements, your anonymous responses will help identify barriers and opportunities to improve the code compliance process. To complete the survey before January 2, 2023, please see the Government of Canada Energy Code Compliance website. If you have any questions or wish to follow up on the results, please contact Buildings-Batiments@NRCAN-RNCAN.gc.ca.
