Membership

Builders and renovators must be a member of the CHBA. Learn more about the benefits of membership from your local HBA . (When you join a local HBA, provincial and national membership are included.)
 

Training

Watch the 1-hour NZE information webinar and successfully complete the NZE Building Science Training. Contact a CHBA NZE Qualified Service Organization (SO) for more information.
 

Licences

Become an EnerGuide registered Builder/Renovator before you start the home. (IF you choose to use the ENERGY STAR®, NovoClimat or R-2000 path, ensure you have the appropriate licenses.) Contact a CHBA NZE Qualified Service Organization (SO) for more information.
 

Labels and Certification

Work with a CHBA NZE Qualified Service Organization (SO) to obtain EnerGuide, ENERGY STAR®, NovoClimat or R-2000 labels/certifications, as well as the CHBA NZE/NZEr label for the home.


Once your first NZE/NZEr home is labelled you earn the designation of CHBA NZE Qualified Builder. Congratulations!

To maintain this designation, participate in on-going NZE education (TBC during the Program Pilot) and build at least one NZEr home every 3 years.
