BC Energy Step Code begins November 1

The energy we use to heat, power, and cool our homes and buildings makes up over half of Victoria’s total greenhouse gas emissions. As part of the City’s commitment to climate action, Victoria is joining other local governments across the province with the adoption of the BC Energy Step Code.

Victoria has adopted a phased approach, beginning November 1, to allow builders time to transition to the new Code requirements. Learn more about the BC Energy Step Code and City of Victoria requirements on the BC Energy Step Code webpage.
