The Ottawa Future Home Project

Ottawa’s first neighbourhood retrofit project 

The Ottawa Future Home Project is a community collaboration, led by EnviroCentre and the Ottawa Energy Collective, to mobilize community engagement and participation in the kind of deep energy retrofits required to improve our homes and transform our neighbourhoods into the low-emissions, resilient, climate-proofed communities of the future. 

The project brings together Ottawa’s leading experts in home energy efficiency and community engagement to test and develop strategies custom-designed for Ottawa homes, residents and communities. 

Funded in part by the Ottawa Climate Action Fund, and in partnership with the City of Ottawa, the Ottawa Future Home Project will raise community awareness around deep retrofits, improve the supports in place for homeowners who want to complete a retrofit, and support the creation of neighbourhood demonstration projects where local residents can learn from their neighbours about the realities of a deep retrofit project. 

The project is part of Ottawa’s strategy to preserve our climate, meet our emissions reduction targets and support a healthy, resilient community. 

The Ottawa Future Home Project will formally launch summer 2021.  To stay up to speed on project developments, please sign up to receive regular project updates here.
