The majority of municipalities of Bruce and Grey have come together with community partners to undertake Community Safety and Well-Being Planning.
Everyone has a role to play in mitigating and adapting to climate change. Grey County is developing a Climate Change Action Plan to understand the impacts of climate change and reduce our green house gas emissions. A key part of the Climate Change Action Plan is engaging with the community to create a ‘made in Grey’ plan.
Who is involved?
Climate Change Working Group
A Climate Change Working Group has been formed including a wide range of departments and key external stakeholders. This group will contribute technical knowledge and provide advice and recommendation as the plan is developed. The group will inform greenhouse gas reduction targets, opportunities to reduce energy emissions, and more.
Stakeholders include: Indigenous groups, conservation authorities, health unit staff, municipal staff and others.
Climate Change Task Force
The Climate Change Task Force consists of Grey County Councillors and County staff. This task force supports a climate-conscious Grey and provides input in the development of the Climate Change Action Plan and recommendations for Council direction.
The planning process follows the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and ICLEI Canada’s Partners for Climate Protection five-milestone framework.
Milestone 1 – Create a baseline emissions inventory and forecast.
Milestone 2 – Set emissions reductions targets.
Milestone 3 – Develop and local action plan.
Milestone 4 – Implement the local action plan.
Milestone 5 – Monitor progress and report results.
Grey County’s plan will be developed throughout 2020. Community and stakeholder engagement will happen throughout the process. The plan will be presented to Grey County Council for adoption in the fall of 2020.
