Our friends @CaGBC are hosting an "Intro to #Passivhaus" class for those wanting to get started:

The CaGBC will offer this popular one-day course as a pre-conference workshop for the Passive House North 2013 conference. This intensive full-day learning session will include expert instruction and content from the Canadian Passive House Institute. It will provide students with education on Passive House design and construction fundamentals, including super insulated envelopes, extreme air tightness and leading edge ventilation design. The course will include a focus on multi-family buildings up to six stories, but covers all building types.
