Creating a Regional Climate Change Action Plan

Autumn forest

Climate change can lead to life-threatening heat waves, storms, flooding, diseases and even impact our food supply. The issue is so serious that “the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to a changing climate” has been established as a matter of provincial interest.

To help maintain the health of our communities and take a proactive approach to addressing climate change, York Regional Council today announced commitment to develop and implement a Regional Climate Change Action Plan. Development of this plan by staff will help the Region comply with new Provincial Plans, which seeks to integrate climate change directly into planning practices within Ontario.

York Region’s Regional Climate Change Action Plan will be developed through consultation with local municipalities, conservation authorities and the public. It will draw from existing policies, procedures and community energy plans in place at York Region’s nine local cities and towns. An initial version of the Action Plan will be presented to Council in the first quarter of 2019. When finalized, the Regional Climate Change Action Plan will work alongside the Region’s Energy Conservation and Demand Management Plan to offer additional opportunities to implement greenhouse gas reductions across the organization and the Region’s communities.

For more information on the proposed framework and timelines for development of a Regional Climate Change Action Plan view the report.
