Becoming a BFZ-C Community

While Built for Zero Canada would like to serve all interested communities in Canada, our capacity is limited by available funding.

We are not currently accepting applications from new communities. We will make an announcement at the time we are accepting new applications.

If you wish to learn more or express interest in joining at a future time, please reach out to

Here is some background for reference:

  • All communities who had been part of the 20KHomes Campaign were invited to join BFZ-C in 2018.
  • An open call for applications was issued in 2019 and nine communities were selected to join BFZ-C at that time.
  • Three waitlisted communities were invited to join in 2020.
  • In 2021 the Ontario provincial government paid to have additional Ontario communities who were interested join BFZ-C, at which time four additional Ontario communities joined.
  • Existing BFZ-C communities were invited to reapply in 2022.
