Explores the link between the theory, policy and practice of energy-efficient social housing. The theory addresses the general question of “What is energy-efficient housing?”, and “Why is it that not all social housing is energy efficient?” Current policy and programs in Ontario are reviewed. The practice in Ottawa is examined and used to inform policy recommendations for Ontario. Finishes with general conclusions of how theory, policy and practice overlap, and suggests further avenues for research.
