Halton Community Climate Plan




To the Climate Summit Participants,


Thank you for your interest and participation in the Halton Community Climate Summit and for your input on development of Halton Community Climate Plan.

Halton Regional staff and the Halon Environmental Network will consolidate and consider all feedback gathered through the consultation activities.


The Halton Community Climate Plan


To propel community involvement, Halton Environmental Network (HEN) has partnered with the Halton Region to support the development of a Community Climate Plan. This work advances Halton Region’s participation in the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program.


Partners for Climate Protection is a Canada-wide program that guides municipalities through a five-step Milestone Framework to help them take action on climate change. The Partners for Climate Protection network is made up of over 500+ members from across the country.


Supporting Resources 



To support the consultation, two resource documents are available.


The Climate Action Resource Guide: From Local to Global. The Guide showcases what other municipalities, organizations, and communities are doing and actions to help inspire what could be included in the Halton Community Climate Plan. This report also highlights some of the great work already being done by the local municipalities in Halton.
