This year’s annual conference will consider innovation and evolution in Passive House design and construction. Additionally, the conference will highlight the need for integrating ecological thinking and environmental harmony in building projects.

This conference will also spotlight efforts to bolster the wider high-performance building sector across Canada and internationally by driving policy and collaborations, and spurring on successful adoption of resilient, low-carbon buildings.




Some of the topics we’ll be exploring:




1. Innovate: Breakthrough and Evolutionary

Innovation stands at the core of advancing Passive House projects. This track will delve into how cutting-edge technology and novel approaches can revolutionize the way we think about high-performance buildings, highlighting success stories, pivotal partnerships, and new approaches that drive adoption and spark interest in low-energy, high-performance, and net-zero building practices.




2. Accelerate: Growth and Awareness

We explore the interplay between policy and practice, highlighting both their symbiotic and conflicting aspects. This exploration is crucial for the rapid advancement of Passive House projects and high-performance building initiatives. This segment will also delve into how governments and investors are embracing Passive House and complimentary building standards to develop effective policies, financing models, and solutions for the quick and successful adoption of resilient, low-carbon buildings.




3. Regenerate: Rejuvenation and Restoration

Focusing on the rejuvenation and restoration of our living and built environments, this segment of the conference will explore how integrating ecological thinking and natural systems into Passive House designs can enhance environmental harmony, regenerate local ecosystems but also enhance the health, happiness, and resilience of their inhabitants.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT

We acknowledge and respect the Lək̓ʷəŋən (Songhees and Esquimalt) Peoples on whose territory the University of Victoria stands, and the Lək̓ʷəŋən and W̱SÁNEĆ Peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.

Passive House Canada would like to further acknowledge the many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island (North America) who live in and around Southern Vancouver Island. As visitors, Passive House Canada and its conference guests have a shared responsibility to learn about the rich history of this land, so that we can better understand our roles as residents, neighbours, partners and caretakers.
