Consultation has concluded

Consistent with Brantford City Council's declaration of a climate emergency, the City of Brantford is committed to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by the year 2050. To meet our objective, we have developed a Corporate Climate Change Action Plan to reduce emissions from City run activities such as operating City buildings, buses & trucks and streetlights (just to name a few) and to begin building a Community Climate Action Plan to reduce emissions across the community.

The Community Climate Change Action Plan will act as a roadmap to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and target the various emissions sources in our community such as transportation, buildings, waste, industry, etc, and outline a timeline to implement programs, policies and resources to reduce emissions in those sectors. For example, one way to combat emissions from personal transportation is to use public transit instead of individual vehicles, so one program recommendation could be to increase frequency or service areas of Brantford Transit services.

We are at the early stages of drafting our community plan and want to hear from YOU about climate change concerns in YOUR neighbourhood and YOUR ideas for how to reduce your own emissions as well as the City's at large. Please complete our public survey AND use the IDEAS tab below to tell us what you’re already doing, or what you’d like to see in the city to reduce emissions. This is the future of your city – dream big Brantford and please tell us what you think! Thank you for your input. We look forward to hearing from you.
