Announcing the launch of the Building Science Specialist Board of Canada (BSSB)

OBEC, together with the other Canadian BECs, is pleased to announce the launch of the Building Science Specialist Board of Canada (BSSB). The BSSB will promote the Building Science Specialist designation across the country, leading to greater prestige for holders of the BSSO, and giving the designation increased authority. 

As part of this process, we’re eliminating the Professional Member category. Professional Members will become Individual Members or one of the five individuals listed under a Corporate Membership of OBEC holding the Building Science Specialist designation from the BSSB. While holders of the BSS designation will pay an annual licensing fee to the BSSB, their total outlay will decrease from $255 to just under $250 ($195 membership and $49.95 license fee). 

The continuing education requirement will remain the same for holders of the BSS designation, but they will report credits to the BSSB instead of OBEC

For complete information, please visit the BSSB website.
