Climate change is real, and its impacts are already being felt here in Caledon. From increasing intense storm events that result in flooding to more extreme heat days in the summer, we know Caledon’s weather will become hotter, wetter and wilder in the coming years.
Caledon’s Climate Change Plan
The draft Resilient Caledon climate change plan has been released for public comment.
It includes actions on how we as a community can reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, buildings and waste, as well as how we can better prepare for impacts like flooding, extreme heat, and ice storms.
Through Fall 2019, we heard from hundreds of residents, farmers, businesses, community groups and youth about how we can address climate change, and ensure Caledon continues to be a great place to live. This input has helped shape the draft plan, and ensures it responds to local issues that are relevant to Caledon.
