FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The City of Fort St. John has won a Canadian Green Building Award at the annual  Canadian Green Building Council’s National Conference in Toronto.

Fort St. John is the BC regional winner of the award.


This is the 3rd award for the Fort St. John Passive House but first national award.

The Canadian Green Building Awards are a joint program with the Canadian Green Building Council and Sustainable Architecture and Building. They recognize excellence in the design as well as execution of Canadian residential and non-residential buildings, of any type, including new construction, existing buildings, renovations as well as interior design projects.

Mayor Lori Ackerman is thrilled the city won such a big award.

“I am very impressed that our project won such a prestigious award. The project highlights what can be accomplished in energy conservation but also what can be accomplished in comfort and style using sustainable technologies.”

“The Passive House serves as an example of the important role that municipalities can play in introducing new ways of building and new technologies that highlight energy conservation.”
