Energy efficiency: Canadians honoured

This release is also available in French.

OTTAWA - The best and brightest advances in energy efficiency across the country were honoured today. Marlene Catterall, Member of Parliament for Ottawa West-Nepean, presented this year's winners of Canada's Energy Efficiency Awards during a ceremony in Ottawa. She presented the awards on behalf of the Honourable R. John Efford, Minister of Natural Resources Canada.

The annual awards recognize Canadian businesses, industry, institutions, governments, communities and individuals, and raise awareness that energy efficiency is a key part of Canada's response to climate change.

"The Government of Canada is committed to building a cleaner future in Canada and finding new and better ways to save energy," said Ms. Catterall. "These winners possess exactly the kind of Canadian expertise and imagination we will need to achieve those goals and continue to lead in innovative energy-efficiency practices and technologies."

The 14 winners and 14 honourable mentions successfully implemented energy-efficiency measures that together resulted in reductions of thousands of tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The winning projects are profiled in special awards supplements in both Time Canada and Affaires Plus.

Energy efficiency reduces the GHG emissions that contribute to climate change. Canada is a world leader in many aspects of energy efficiency, and the awards program celebrates and publicizes the country's successes.

The 2005 winners and their projects are as follows:

  • CBC Radio, Ideas, Toronto, Ontario - Fueling the Future: The Soft Path;
  • The City of North Vancouver, British Columbia - Lonsdale Energy Corporation;
  • ConocoPhillips Canada, Calgary, Alberta - Empress CO2 extraction plant;
  • Dessau-Soprin, Longueuil, Quebec - cole du Tou
