Eco-Roof Case Studies

Toronto's Eco-Roof Incentive Program provides incentives to commercial, industrial and institutional (ICI) property owners to improve the sustainability of Toronto's building stock and its resilience to climate change. Financial incentives are provided for the construction of green roofs that support vegetation and cool roofs that reflect the sun's thermal energy. The program, launched in March 2009, supports the City's Climate Change Action Plan and complements the City's Green Roof Bylaw and the Green Standard by encouraging owners of existing buildings to retrofit their roofs.

The following case studies feature green and cool roofs installed by some of the Eco-Roof Incentive Program grants recipients.
