Every R-2000 home is certified. Issued by the Government of Canada, the certificate is your proof that your home has met the demanding R-2000 quality assurance requirements and that you own an R-2000 home.
- Once an R-2000 home is completed, the builder submits an application stating the home meets all of the R-2000 requirements for certification.
- Homeowners receive a numbered R-2000 certificate for their records and an R-2000 label which is attached to the electrical panel in the home.
- A registry of certified R-2000 homes is maintained by Natural Resources Canada and by R-2000 Regional Delivery Agents. Anyone considering buying a resale R-2000 home can verify that the home has been certified.
The certificate sets R-2000 homes apart from ones that someone may claim are built to R-2000 standards or are "just like an R-2000 home". Only homes that pass all the R-2000 tests and inspections can be certified as an R-2000 home. If it isn’t certified, it isn’t an R-2000 home.
