In 2009, the City of Toronto was the first city in Canada to enact a green roof bylaw. Now, with approximately 500 green roofs in the city, and every new building with a gross floor plan of 2,000m2 required to install a green roof, there’s never been a greater demand for green roof designers, practitioners, and maintenance personnel.

- Conduct cost-benefit analyses to make a business case for green roofs
- Design to achieve multiple performance benefits
- Develop a project budget
- Determine essential qualifications for project teams
