About Us

The Sustainable Housing Foundation

The Sustainable Housing Foundation (SHF) is the only nonprofit in Canada focused on increasing sustainability in the residential building sector. We work with builders, manufacturers, academia and governments to identify and act upon opportunities in the marketplace for sustainable development. We also educate home owners and home buyers on sustainability and encourage them to renovate/buy homes that are more sustainable.
