Town of Canmore

Green Building Regulations

The Town of Canmore Green Building Regulations were established to encourage development in a manner more environmentally sustainable than traditional building practices. Green buildings result in a higher quality product, cost less to operate, are more adaptable to new uses, are healthier for their occupants, and have longer economic lives.

Building and development permits for new construction are subject to these regulations. Renovations, additions, reconstruction, or construction of accessory dwelling units are not required to meet the Green Building Regulations.

Two public guides are available to help applicants understand the green building requirements in Canmore’s Land Use Bylaw:
