In communities across the country, Canadians are feeling the impacts of climate change and want to be part of the solution.
Natural Resources Canada announced a $22-million investment for the City of Vancouver to establish an urban climate centre in Vancouver. This investment will support energy efficiency improvements in homes and buildings, including affordable housing developments.
The city will operate one of seven new Low Carbon Cities Canada (LC3) urban climate centres across Canada that are helping to bridge the commercialization gap and reduce the business risk of developing tomorrow’s low-carbon technologies and innovations.
The Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Green Municipal FundTM will serve as the national office hub for the LC3. Announced in Budget 2019, LC3 is part of Canada’s $1.01-billion plan to make communities more energy-efficient. It will use federal investments to work with private investors, public agencies, utilities, non-profit organizations and other levels of government to build long-term, low-carbon solutions.
