Climate Change Planning

Project Description

The County of Haliburton is developing a Community Climate Action Plan (CCAP). The CCAP will aim to provide a long-term roadmap for the transition to a low carbon and resilient community.

The local impacts of climate change are already being felt through seasonal flooding, increased heat waves, and more extreme storms. Local contributions to climate change include greenhouse gas emissions from on-road transportation (67%), residential buildings (24%), industrial, commercial and institutional buildings (6%), and off-road transportation (3%).

Adapting to more variable and extreme weather, protecting our natural assets, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions will improve community health and wellbeing, generate job opportunities, and increase energy affordability and transportation options.


Community Engagement

The CCAP will be designed to reflect the interests and perspectives of the community regarding the future sustainability of the County. Community feedback will be used to identify and prioritize goals, targets, strategies and actions that the County can take to build a low carbon and resilient future. Use the subscribe feature on this page to stay informed on updates for community engagement.

    Public engagement now open! This is the first of two community engagements planned as part of the development of the Community Climate Action Plan. In this first survey, you will have a chance to tell us what you think the County should prioritize regarding issues related to climate change. The second survey, planned for late summer 2022, will ask for your input on specific strategies and actions to reduce local GHG emissions and build climate resilience.

    If you submit your survey between now and May 30, you can be entered into a draw to win a FoodCycler! Head over to haliburtonclimate.ethelo.net to participate. If you would like a print version of the survey, or have any questions, please contact Korey McKay, Climate Change Coordinator, County of Haliburton at kmckay@haliburtoncounty.ca
