Why CHBA supports LEEP
CHBA has been supporting LEEP for more than 10 years and has encouraged its expansion because of its exceptional success in accelerating adoption and deployment of emerging technologies through its builder- and renovator-led model that:
CHBA has now partnered with NRCan to scale up the LEEP initiative to deliver it in markets across Canada on a more regular and frequent basis, in a coordinated national delivery approach through CHBA’s local and provincial associations. CHBA will leverage the deep dives into specific technologies carried out by NRCan’s LEEP team through its regional delivery, with ‘best of’ forums refined to local needs in major Canadian markets. CHBA is also uniquely positioned to disseminate the results across the Canadian home building and renovation industries and will do so through its expansive network and communication channels. CHBA kicked off 2022 with the planning of 12 Costing Benefit Analysis Tool (CBAT) workshops, with more of these and other types of LEEP events to come over the next three years.
