Households can have a significant impact on the environment. The Households and the Environment Survey (HES) aims to measure the behaviours of Canadian households with respect to the environment. First conducted in 1991, it has since been conducted in 1994, 2006, 2007, 2009 and most recently in 2011. The Household and the Environment Survey – Energy Use Supplement was a follow-up survey to the HES that asked more detailed information relating to the characteristics and energy use of dwellings.

This report presents the results of the following themes covered by the 2011 HES Energy Use Supplement:

  • Heating equipment and heating fuels;
  • Energy consumption by household and dwelling characteristics;
  • Energy-saving practices and retrofitting practices.
