To protect our environment and reduce the impacts of climate change, the Government of Canada has committed to reducing Canada’s total GHG emissions to 40-45 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030, and to reach net zero by 2050.*
As the buildings sector is Canada’s third-largest source of emissions, prioritizing decarbonization is critical to meeting this net zero target*, and addressing climate change requires awareness, collaboration, knowledge sharing, and skill-building.

Funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Workforce Solutions Program, the Canada Green Building Council (CAGBC) in partnership with the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) has developed the Building Skills for Climate Change: Low-Carbon Training Program. This program is aimed at upskilling building professionals, including architects, engineers, contractors, and owners and operators, to accelerate the adoption of low-carbon practices, reduce emissions, and contribute to Canada’s Climate Action Plan and Just Transition. For more information, see the media release.
This complimentary training will be offered virtually, in three half-day sessions, through CCA’s integrated partner associations in the federally mandated provinces of AB, BC and ON. The training will provide construction professionals with the fundamentals of low-carbon building retrofits or new builds, an essential step in advancing our industry’s contribution to greening our country.
The Low Carbon Training Program is funded in part by the Government of Canada and led by the Canada Green Building Council.
