The Clean Air Partnership and City of Toronto hosted municipal and provincial elected officials at the 2017 Clean Air Council Summit. The Clean Air Council (CAC) is a network of 29 municipalities, representing almost 60% of Ontario’s population, who work collaboratively on the development and implementation of clean air and climate change mitigation and adaptation actions.
The June 8th Clean Air Council Summit provided an opportunity for elected officials from all orders of government to announce upcoming climate change actions being undertaken in their jurisdiction and share the message of the key role municipalities play advancing air pollution and climate change solutions. The Summit also provided a progress report on the 2015 – 2018 Clean Air Council Inter-governmental Declaration on Clean Air and Climate Change, highlighting priority action areas where all orders of government are working together to advance sustainable, livable communities.
Below are presentations from the Summit and a recording of the various presentations and announcements is in the works and this page will be updated when those are available. Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Clean Air Council Summit and for their continued progress on clean air and climate change action implementation.
