Canada is in its infancy with regard to the Passive House movement.  A small but strong contingent of people spread across the country is honing their skills on the first PH buildings.  In 2012 a public request was sent out across Canada to those endeavouring to build toward PH standards.  

This book is a snapshot in time of these buildings in Canada. The goal is to present these excellent designs in an easily comprehensible way to architect, engineer, builder and future home owners alike. This book encompasses buildings from British Columbia to Nova Scotia and building types as diverse as double stud and rammed earth.   I find the vast array of methodologies amazing.

I hope you enjoy the book and consider some of the ideas for your own construction projects.
