In December of 2020, the District of North Vancouver passed a new policy that would make most new buildings fossil fuel-free by requiring new single-family homes to achieve the highest efficiency level of the BC Energy Step Code – Level 5 – or instead use a low-carbon energy system for heat and hot water and meet Level 3 of the code. New multi-family apartments must meet Level 4 of the Step Code or meet Level 3 with a low-carbon energy system. And, in December 2021, the council of the district voted to endorse the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty, which will hold the community to its position against fossil fuel expansion.
