EQuilibrium was a national sustainable housing demonstration initiative, created and led by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. It developed on the ground prototypes of houses whose ultimate goal is a highly energy efficient, low environmental impact dwelling that provides healthy indoor living for its occupants, and produces as much energy as it consumes on a yearly basis. Design criteria could be used to inform the development of development permit areas.
