    Climate Change Adaptation Plan

    The Town of Halton Hills is participating in the Great Lakes Climate Change Adaptation Project  by ICLEI Canada in 2016. The Town will benefit from the information collected because it will contribute to the Town developing its own Climate Change Adaptation Plan. The Town will utilize ICLEI Canada’s BARC (Building Adaptive and Resilient Communities) framework to develop the Town’s Climate Change Adaptation Plan.

    The Plan will focus on identifying our community’s risks to climate change and consist of developing actions to take to manage, minimize, or eliminate those risks.

    The development of this plan is a priority of Council’s Strategic Action Plan. Council recognizes our community’s experience with a changing climate and the need to be prepared and adaptive for changes in the weather. Extreme weather events, such as the 2013 ice storm, the 2016 low precipitation and extreme summer heat reinforces the need for us to be prepared. The Climate Change Adaptation Plan will be completed by May 2018.
