There is a search engine for approved auditors for the ecoenergy retrofit program http://oee.nrcan.gc.ca/residential/perso...

The other benefit when buying an older home (age of home should probably be a consideration, much like the age of cars for the clean air certification) is that a lot of that money can be recouped, as long as you aren't spending all of your available funds on the down payment.

I don't agree with making it a mandatory requirement; however, if you were, the easiest way to have that implemented is to make it a requirement for CMHC insured homes of a certain age, and to have the cost incorporated into the premium, so that the client then doesn't have to bear the cost up front.
