Natural Resource Canada’s R-2000 building standard is a high performance residential building standard that specifies performance targets for energy efficiency, indoor air quality and the use of environmentally responsible products and materials.
R-2000 is Natural Resource Canada’s most stringent energy-efficiency standard for residential building. R-2000 homes built to the 2012 Standard will meet energy efficiency requirements that have been increased by 50%. All R-2000 homes are constructed by licensed and trained builders, evaluated, inspected and tested by independent third-party inspectors, and are certified by the Government of Canada.
