Introduction to Passive House Canada
April 13 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
An intro to the Passive House standard. In this conversation, we will chat with Passive House Canada’s CEO, Chris Ballard and Mark Bernhardt, President of Bernhardt Contracting Ltd., about everything you need to know about Passive House design and construction.
What is a Passive House, and why would someone want to live, work or play in one? How does it work? And how is a Passive house built, and why do you need to know about Passive House construction?

Passive House Canada is a national non-profit professional association advocating for the Passive House high-performance building standard. Passive House is recognized internationally as the proven best way to build for comfort, affordability and energy efficiency of residential, institutional and commercial buildings, through all stages of design, construction, and livability.
PHC was founded in 2013 as the Canadian Passive House Institute West (CanPHI West) and became Passive House Canada | Maison Passive Canada in 2016 in response to demand from the building community to form a single national organization. We facilitate the adoption of the Passive House Standard through our advocacy work, education program, and nation-wide events.
PHC’s head office is in Victoria, B.C., with course instructors, volunteers and members across Canada. PHC is an affiliate of the International Passive House Association and a member of the North American Passive House Network, working in collaboration with local governments and other organizations to transform our built environment.
