The EnerGuide for New Homes program is a national program run by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). This rating program is a standard way to measure a home’s energy performance.
The EnerGuide Rating System service provides independent, third-party energy efficiency advice. Reducing the amount of energy that Canadians use in their homes is part of Canada’s climate-change solution. The goal is to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in order to help improve our environment and repair previous damages inflicted by our negligent use of resources and energy.
