Energy resources and programs for existing multi-family buildings

Our 2020 energy reduction target for existing buildings is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% below 2007 levels.

Do you live in or own a multi-family building?  Below is a list of energy resources and programs available for residents or owners of a condo, strata building, townhouse, rental apartment, non-profit, and co-op.

Depending on its size, your building may be eligible for a range of utility programs, incentives, and rebates. 

Product incentives can help offset the costs to replace old, inefficient technologies with new energy-efficient models. Free energy assessments may also be available. 


As part of the our Greenest City 2020 Action Plan, we introduced Canada’s first energy bylaw for existing buildings. The energy requirements come into effect when you apply for a building permit to renovate any part of a building, including residential suites.
