LEED Canada project registration extended until October 2016

Extension offers the green building industry additional time to prepare for the newest version of LEED

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) announced today that it will allow LEED users to register projects under the LEED 2009 rating system until October 31, 2016. The CaGBC confirms project registration for LEED Canada will remain open until this date. The original date for LEED 2009 registration to close was June 15, 2015. Extending to October 2016 gives LEED users and members of the green building industry additional time to prepare for LEED v4, the latest version of LEED, which features increased rigor and multiple updates.

In a press release issued earlier today, the USGBC reported that it based its decision in part on a survey it conducted during last week’s Greenbuild conference.

“The CaGBC strongly supports the direction of LEED v4 and I’m happy to see the USGBC is carefully assessing and responding to market needs carefully,” says Thomas Mueller, President and CEO, Canada Green Building Council. “This extension also supports the CaGBC’s philosophy of ‘continuous improvement’ – allowing the Canadian market to raise the level of expertise and capacity over time, and in so doing ensuring a smooth transition to LEED v4 and to better buildings.”
