universal design with features such as improved indoor air and environment quality; a reduced ecological footprint through energy, water and resource efficiency; universal, accessible and adaptable design to meet changing needs; and affordable green financing.

The canühome meets LEED® standards through the use of FSC certified wood products.

“Purchasing wood products certified to FSC’s rigorous environmental and social standards is one ofthe most effective ways of supporting healthy forests and healthy communities. FSC is the only forest certification system supported by environmental groups worldwide and the only one recognized under the LEED® green building rating system,” said Antony Marcil, President and C.E.O., FSC Canada.

The canühome is open for tours at the Green Living Show at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto from April 25 to 27. The exhibit then travels to the Earth Tones Event at Yorkdale Shopping Centre from June 5 to 15, and to IIDEX/NeoCon Canada 2008 at the Direct Energy Centre from September 25 and 26.
