Toronto’s Green Roof Bylaw

Toronto is the first city in North America to require green roofs by law and has now passed into its third phase. All new buildings with a floor area of 2,000 sq metres are required to devote 20-60% of available roof space to vegetation. Lower utility bills result with reduced heat loss in winter and reduced heat gain in summer.
