The City of Burlington is hosting a virtual launch of Climate Resilient Burlington (CRB): A Plan for Adapting to Our Warmer, Wetter and Wilder Weather.
Since the March blog post:
- Staff and community stakeholder teams were formed and met to learn more about the project and to develop climate impact statements which consider projected climatic threats and their effects on the built, economic, natural and social systems
- A consultant was hired in June to help develop the CRB plan following a process aligned with reporting to the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy which the City of Burlington joined in 2020
- Staff and community workshops began in Sept. 2021 and will continue until Jan. 2022

Join us to learn more about the CRB project and to hear from our keynote speaker David Phillips, Senior Climatologist, Environment and Climate Change Canada as he presents “Climate and Weather: It’s Not What Our Grandparents Knew.” You will have an opportunity to ask David questions following his presentation.
