By 2030, we’re aiming to cut our carbon pollution from buildings in half compared to 2007 levels.
Do you live in, manage, or own a unit in a multi-family building? Below is a list of energy resources and programs available for residents or owners of a condo, strata unit, townhouse, rental apartment, non-profit, or co-op building.
With increasing demand for electrification in multi-family buildings, resources are becoming more readily available.
What's happeningThe Rental Apartment Retrofit Accelerator program
We’ve launched the Rental Apartment Retrofit Accelerator (RARA) pilot program to future-proof existing rental buildings, aiming to:
- Make buildings more resilient to the impacts of climate change
- Improve energy efficiency
- Increasing indoor comfort
- Decrease emissions with minimal impacts to tenants
- Provide capital incentives to reduce emissions and increase resilience for up to 30 non-profit buildings in Vancouver
Applications are now open
Building owners with market rental apartments located in Vancouver are eligible to apply to the pilot program.
