Salus Passive House

Version française

Here’s an example of what can be done.

Salus offers housing for adults with mental illness. They are building the largest scale multi-residential affordable housing project built to Passive House standards in North America. It is also the first affordable housing project in the world targeting International Passive Housing certification in a Northern Climate.

Passive houses aim to bring energy usage to an absolute minimum.

They got some coverage on Ottawa Morning on CBC. Give a listen.
