Introduced in 1982, R-2000 represents ultra energy efficient new home construction in Canada. An initiative of Natural Resources Canada, the R-2000 is a voluntary standard that exceeds building code requirements for energy efficiency by 50%.
An R-2000 home is one of the most energy efficient home in Canada. And an R-2000 builder is a leader in the industry. Committed to providing their customers a leading-edge home, an R-2000 builder uses methods and technology superior to conventional construction. Every R-2000 builder is trained in advanced design and construction techniques, and has a license to prove it. With growing concerns over greenhouse gasses and global warming, R-2000 raises the bar for environmentally responsible housing.
Home building technology is continuously improving through research and development and the demonstration of this new knowledge on real homes. The R-2000 Standard is for advanced home builders who want to build some of the most energy efficient homes in Canada.

Managed by Natural Resources Canada’s Office of Energy Efficiency and developed in partnership with Canada’s residential construction industry, R-2000 is the best-in-class energy efficiency standard that sets the bar for leading-edge, energy efficient new home construction.
R-2000 certified new homes are 50% more energy efficient that building code, where as ENERGY STAR® qualified homes are 20% more energy efficient that code-built homes
R-2000 homes are the most energy efficient homes on the market. Only a handful of builders can meet that standard. It’s a mark of distinction.
