Building the Canada we want in 2050: Efficiency Canada’s perspectives on the National Infrastructure Assessment

We welcome the opportunity to provide our thoughts and perspectives on the priorities laid out in Building the Canada We Want in 2050 Engagement Paper on the National Infrastructure Assessment. The Canada we want in 2050, with more inclusive and livable communities that offer affordable housing for all Canadians, can be achieved via wide-scale retrofits and net-zero new builds constructed with low and zero carbon building materials.

Canada’s Climate Retrofit Mission

Retrofitting our buildings at the scale and performance required to confront climate change calls for market re-shaping innovations. This report defines a climate retrofit mission for Canada and proposes a way to organize the public sector to achieve it.
