For buildings that are greater than 2000 mGFA, Tier 1 requires the submission of a Design Development Stage Energy Report prior to Site Plan Approval that demonstrates a minimum level of compliance in accordance with the applicable version of the Toronto Green Standard energy efficiency requirements. An As-Constructed Stage Energy Report is required for Tier 2 or higher levels of performance, based on Issued for Construction drawings and submitted prior to the completion of third-party verification of Tier 2 or better projects.

Planning applications submitted before May 1, 2018:
