Waterloo Region Town Hall – Federal Climate Action Plan Consultation
A broad coalition of local organizations are partnering with our Five federal members of Parliament to host the Waterloo Region Town Hall – Federal Climate Action Consultation.
Prime Minister Trudeau and Canada’s First Ministers committed to creating a national climate strategy for Canada in the March 2016 Vancouver Declaration. Through the summer, public consultation activities related to this strategy will take place across the country and feed into expert working groups assembled by the federal and provincial governments.
This is our opportunity to demonstrate that we have a powerful base of creative, knowledgeable leaders and citizens who are passionate about finding climate change solutions.
We want to show the Federal government that our region cares about addressing climate change, and that we are already working on solutions. Have your voice heard! Or simply come along to support other speakers and show that you really care about the issue.

Note that registration is not required to participate in the consultation. However, it is appreciated as it helps with our planning.
Groups engaged with the People’s Climate Plan will also be participating in this consultation. You can learn more about this initiative and local climate action educational opportunities at Canada People's Climate Plan.
