Public Planning Sessions

50% of Canadian emissions can be addressed at the local level.  Invite your friends, club, church, family to an online workshop to address your community's way forward.

Local Government & Organizational Planning Sessions

First Nation and settler local governments are the key to half of Canadian emissions.  We'd love to organize an online workshop to begin visualizing a plan for your local government. *

Small Low-Cost Air Quality PM Sensor Pilot Project

This project is undertaken with the Meteorological Services of Canada, a branch within Environment and Climate Change Canada.   We are investigating the benefit of using emerging low-cost sensor technologies to measure Particulate Matter to augment current air quality monitoring networks.  Please contact us if you are in Traditional Kwakwak'awk Territory and would like a free monitor in you community.

Wood Stove Exchange Program (WSEP) Campaign

The Provincial Wood Stove Exchange Program changes out old, smoky wood stoves for cleaner heating options including heat pumps, gas or pellet stoves and cleaner-burning wood stoves.The program is offered in communities around the province and provides funding to promote the exchange and offer incentives to replace old wood stoves. It also delivers education to help people operate their wood-burning appliances efficiently.  We're seeking community partners to implement this program.

Save the Date 

In partnership with Vancouver Island Regional Library, there will be an interactive planning event from 6-7 p.m.  Together we will figure out what to do to cut community emissions in half by 2030.  If every community in Canada does this, half of Canadian emissions will be cut over the next 8 years!
