EQuilibrium™ Communities Initiative
The EQuilibrium™ Communities Initiative is a sustainable community demonstration initiative that was jointly funded by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). It provided financial assistance to developers of selected neighbourhood projects for research and technical activities to improve, monitor and showcase their performance in the areas of energy, water and stormwater, protection of the natural environment, land use and housing, transportation and financial viability.
The EQuilibrium™ Communities projects are: Station Pointe Greens in Edmonton, Alberta; Ampersand in Ottawa, Ontario; Ty-Histanis neighbourhood development 10 km from Tofino, British Columbia; and the Regent Park Revitalization in Toronto, Ontario. Detailed information about each of the projects is available here.
