Join us as Jeff Baker, President of WESTLab Canada and Technical Consultant for Fenestration Canada, discusses the Canadian Energy Codes and Energy Acts.
The presentation will also address the new proposal from Natural Resources Canada to transform the residential window market in Canada. The current and recently announced updates to provincial codes in Canada are very aggressive for fenestration products, but they are mild compared to the long term changes being proposed by Natural Resources Canada in their federal regulations.
Manufacturers selling in the Canadian market should not miss this opportunity to hear the latest provincial and federal energy code and energy act details in Canada.
Jeff Baker received his Master’s Degree from the University of Waterloo, studying fenestration heat transfer. He has spent the last thirty years working in the fenestration energy analysis field and is currently the President of WESTLab Canada. WESTLab is a world leader in the energy analysis of fenestration systems, currently offering fenestration energy rating services to the NFRC and CSA standards.
He is the technical consultant for the Fenestration Canada, past chair of the NFRC board of directors, chair of the CSA A440 technical committee on fenestration performance, member of the Canadian Home Builders Association Technical Research Committee, and participates in several Canadian national building code committees. In his free time, Jeff is an avid landscape photographer trying get out and shoot as much as possible.
