Alberta Economic Development & Trade
Alberta's building products and technologies industry is made up of over 1,200 firms. These firms – mostly small to medium size businesses specializing in custom work and leading edge technology – manufacture a wide variety of commodity and value-added products and components.
Alberta's building products and technologies industry has gained a worldwide reputation, particularly in the areas of cold-weather construction and green building technologies. This reflects the high priority that industry and the Alberta government have placed on quality, energy conservation and making efficient use of sustainable resources. There are over 1000 LEED project registrations in Alberta.
In collaboration with the Canada Green Building Council -Alberta Chapter, the Government of Alberta is taking a leading role in promoting and advancing Alberta's sustainable building products, services and technologies sector to international export markets.
