Vancouver's Central Library Boosts Energy Efficiency

Housing, Infrastructure and Communities Canada

Energy efficiency upgrades to the Central Library in Library Square are underway after a combined investment of more than $5.9 million from the federal government and the City of Vancouver.

The library is replacing the current cooling systems with new heat pumps and energy recovery equipment, which will improve energy efficiency and reduce operational costs, as well as improve overall comfort and experience for both patrons and staff.

The Green and Inclusive Buildings (GICB) program aims to improve the places Canadians work, learn, play, live and come together by cutting pollution, reducing costs, and supporting thousands of good jobs.

Through green and other upgrades to existing public community buildings and new builds in underserved communities, the GICB program helps ensure community facilities are inclusive, accessible, and have a long service life, while also helping Canada move towards its net-zero objectives by 2050.
