The Social Housing Retrofit Project is publicly listed on the CSA CleanProjects Registry and has been 3rd party verified under ISO-14064-2 by Grant Thornton LLP. This project was implemented by Office municipal d'habitation de Montréal's (OMHM) and utilizes new and energy efficient technologies which replace inefficient gas boilers, piping systems, and allow for the fuel switching of heat generation systems from natural gas to electricity.


Since 2003, OMHM has gradually implemented several energy efficient projects, which substantially reduce electricity and natural gas consumption. Among them, three initiatives have had a major impact on the reduction of emissions, including the replacement of 211 gas boilers, heat generation system fuel displacement, and retrofits performed on 17 underground parking facilities.
