Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan

Around the world, communities are embracing strategies for reducing the climatic effects of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The City of Timmins, in an effort to reduce GHG emissions, is joining over 350 Canadian municipalities in the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program, which is a collaborative tool for climate action at the municipal level. In its Official Plan, the City of Timmins identified the desire to Build a Strong, Safe and Sustainable Community as a strategic priority. We believe that implementing this GHG Emissions Reduction Plan with clear and achievable targets, combined with other related efforts, the City of Timmins will meet its strategic priority while serving as an example and leader in climate change mitigation.
