  • Introduction 

    Imagine making your way down a shady, tree lined street filled with bikes, birdsong and friendly faces. The air is clean and moist, even in the city. Water runs clear and cold through the rivers, and the oceans and forests are alive with plants and animals.

    This reality is within our reach, but a rapidly changing climate stands in our way.

    Climate change is happening, so what are we going to do about it? 

    Every action we take, small or large, to address climate change is a step in the right direction. The City of Port Coquitlam is creating a Climate Action Plan to map out the best route to take to mitigate climate change and adapt to climate change


    The Plan will update and build on the greenhouse gas emissions reduction scope in the City’s current Corporate and Community Climate Action Plan, last updated in 2010, and align with emerging best practices through a low-carbon resilience approach, which considers both climate change mitigation and adaptation together.


    How to we build this plan?

    Before we can begin developing the Climate Action Plan, we first need to understand where we’re starting from. This survey gives you the opportunity to tell us what your concerns for the future are, and what your vision for a low-carbon future looks like.
