Are you an affordable housing provider looking to retrofit existing units or construct energy-efficient new builds? FCM’s Sustainable Affordable Housing (SAH) initiative is collaborating with organizations across Canada to create more sustainable communities through the Regional Energy Coaches (REC) pilot project.
These coaches will help affordable housing providers – including municipal, not-for-profit organizations and housing co-operatives – initiate and plan energy efficient retrofits and new builds. From project management and technical support, to walk-through energy assessments and one-on-one coaching, RECs will:
- guide you through the process of identifying opportunities and evaluating the feasibility of energy retrofits,
- demonstrate what technologies you can leverage,
- provide insights on how to maximize the environmental impact of your project,
- support the preparation of a successful funding application,
- and more.
Discover how you can access this unique coaching opportunity and get your energy efficient project started through one of our partners:
- The BC Non-Profit Housing Association
- The Community Housing Transformation Centre
- The Co-operative Housing Federation of Canada
Launched in November 2020, the REC project is a two-year pilot focused on supporting providers in British Columbia, the Prairies, and the Atlantic and Quebec regions, as well as the co-operative housing sector.
