Climate Emergency Action Plan 2022 is a corporate and community plan with mitigation and adaptation actions.
Community Energy Plan is under development, expected to be presented to council in 2023.
Mississauga's Climate Change Action Plan, 2019 is a corporate and community plan with mitigation and adaptation actions.
Newmarket's Community Energy Plan sets clear targets for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions and clear actions for achieving those results.
Oakville's Community Energy Strategy directly supports Council's climate emergency declaration by providing clear and achievable goals to significantly lower community greenhouse gas emissions and improve our overall energy efficiency while strengthening the local economy.
Oshawa's Community Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan achieves Milestone 3 of the Partners for Climate Protection by outlining the goal, objectives, scope and community stakeholder engagement strategy for citywide greenhouse gas reduction targets.
Energy Evolution sets the framework for what it will take for Ottawa to achieve these GHG emission reduction targets. It is a community energy transition strategy designed to manage energy consumption, promote the use of renewable energy and advance local economic development opportunities in Ottawa.
City of Pickering has adopted the Durham Community Energy Plan.
Richmond Hill’s Path to a Low-Carbon Future also known as the City’s Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) sets the goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.
TransformTO Net Zero Strategy triggers new and accelerated implementation actions to drive down community-wide emissions, particularly in the short term, and establishes the trajectory needed to reach net zero by 2040.
City of Vaughan is updating the existing Municipal Energy Plan, 2013. A final plan and implementation guide will be developed and presented to Vaughan Council for approval in 2023.
TransformWR is Waterloo Region’s community-wide response to the global climate crisis. The document outlines Waterloo Region's long-term strategy to achieve an 80% local greenhouse gas emission (GHG) reduction target (based on 2010 levels), and identifies local action needed to reduce our emissions by 30% by the year 2030. Community Energy Investment Strategy aims to improve and sustain Waterloo Region’s economic competitiveness and quality of life through the coordination of targeted energy investments.
The Climate Emergency Response Plan: Phase 2: Mitigation was endorsed by Council at the Regular Council Meeting on Monday, December 18, 2023. The Plan focuses on climate mitigation and identifies the sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Whitby and provides guidance and recommendations to reach the Town’s community GHG emissions reduction target of net-zero by 2045. The Town of Whitby will work with the community to commence the actions outlined in the Implementation Plan which actively guides the Plan’s progress from 2024 to 2030.
Windsor's Community Energy Plan is aimed at improving energy efficiency; modifying land use planning; reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions; and fostering green energy solutions throughout Windsor, while supporting local economic development.
