ENERGY STAR® Canada Recognizes Leaders in Energy Efficiency
June 7, 2022 Ottawa, Ontario Natural Resources Canada
Promoting energy efficiency in our homes, products, businesses and industries is central to helping Canadians build a healthier, more resilient energy future while fighting climate change. By embracing new technologies, building materials, and innovative financing models, we are not only enabling the next generation of skilled energy efficiency workers but also accelerating our transition to net-zero by 2050.
Today, the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources, congratulated the winners of the 2022 ENERGY STAR Canada Awards for their remarkable contributions in promoting the most energy-efficient products, new homes and buildings — inspiring Canadians to regularly take action on climate change.
ENERGY STAR Canada is a voluntary partnership between the Government of Canada and more than 1,000 organizations working to use our natural resources more wisely in order to make high efficiency products readily available and visible to Canadians. The ENERGY STAR symbol is the internationally recognized and trusted mark of high efficiency, and behind every label is a product, home, building or industrial facility that is certified to use less energy, reducing emissions that contribute to climate change. In 2021 alone, ENERGY STAR certified products saved enough energy to power over 402K homes for a year.
With Canada’s goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 in mind, this year’s award winners have demonstrated innovative climate action at the local level, providing solutions to building a cleaner, greener future for Canadians.

Award winners earn the prized recognition of being the best in their class—and use of a special ENERGY STAR winner’s symbol.
Since the program’s inception in 2001, ENERGY STAR-certified products are estimated to have saved approximately 237 petajoules of energy and avoided approximately 26 megatonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
Each year ENERGY STAR Canada recognizes businesses and organizations for their outstanding contributions to protecting the environment and saving energy.
Winners are awarded based on their Canadian sales and marketing, but may still be eligible if their headquarters are located within the United States.
