AbstractThe paper reviews ongoing Canadian activities related to utilization of solar energy for heating buildings. These include the formation of the Solar Energy Society of Canada, Inc.; a study on the feasibility of solar heating in Canada conducted in Canada by the University of Waterloo; and the initiation of six solar-heating demonstration projects under the Canadian Urban Demonstration Program. New activities reviewed are the $550,000 Federal funding program for encouraging solar heating in buildings; the forthcoming solar-heated Senior Citizen Home sponsored by the Province of Ontario; and the ongoing construction of privately-funded solar-heated homes. International activity on solar energy utilization is reviewed for comparison with the Canadian level of effort.
