LEED v4 – The Future of Green Building is Here.


If you are looking for the best way to take your buildings to the next level, look no further than LEED v4. As the latest version of the world’s most widely used and successful green building rating system, LEED v4 drives big reductions in GHG emissions in your buildings, and is the only rating system that looks at the holistic impact of a building – from construction, to operation, to the impact on human health and the nearby environment. Join the future of green building today by registering your next project under LEED v4.

Registration fees are calculated and paid through the online registration process; receipt of payment determines the date of registration. The certification fee is based on your project's rating system and size; it is calculated and paid within LEED Online when the project team submits documentation for review. Project teams may prepay certification fees at any time. LEED Online reflects Canadian pricing (in Canadian Dollars) and member discounts. Registration and certification fees are not refundable and may change at any time.

Discounts for members:

Member discounts for registration and certification are determined automatically based on the membership status of the individual processing the transaction. Member discounts on registration or certification fees apply to current Specialist members of the CaGBC.
