About the Climate Hub
Cities are key in the fight against climate change
Cities govern transportation, building bylaws, land use planning and waste management.
These areas of municipal responsibility are all major emitters of greenhouse gases. But with the right policies in place, all of them can contribute to the solutions we need.
Across Canada, Community Climate Hubs are springing up to help their cities shift to the low-carbon economy. Through broad stakeholder engagement, Hubs build support for political leadership on climate change.
The Maple Ridge Climate Hub formed in 2019. Our purpose is to empower residents of Maple Ridge to advance toward a low-carbon economy, through:
Public communication and education on related topics
Community activities to engage city residents
Support for municipal policy changes
Maple Ridge citizens want every level of government to take meaningful action on climate change.
And we are ready to take action ourselves, by being informed, making changes in our personal lives, and making our voices heard.
