Passive House Social – Vancouver

October 26, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Overview

October’s Passive House Social is going on tour! Join Passive House Canada at the Whistler Housing Authority’s brand new multi-family Passive House where you’ll hear presentations from several groups involved in the project, followed by a tour of the building. Next, you’ll head down the mountain to Squamish to visit the Cheakamus Centre where you’ll get to tour both unfinished cabins and Passive House retrofitted cabins. After that, you’ll all be ready to chat about the day’s discoveries so you’ll transfer to a local pub for dinner and networking!


Important Note: the registration fee does not include transportation. Please try to carpool with a group to reduce the carbon impact of this event!

  • If you are driving to Whistler and Squamish, please email Passive House Canada and they will try to match you with passengers.
