On Friday November 21, 2008 the Centre received certification as a LEED Gold Building by the Canada Green Building Council. Tony D'Amario, CAO and Secretary -Treasurer of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority said that they are "very pleased that the Canada Green Building Council accepted all of the 46 credits requested.
