Climate Advisory Group

The City is now accepting applications from local residents and organizations to become a part of the City's new Climate Advisory Group (CAG) that will guide implementation of the TransformTO Net Zero Climate Action Strategy.

CAG members will act as advisors and champions for climate action and the policies, programs and initiatives being developed for implementation as part of the TransformTO Net Zero Strategy. The Toronto City Council-approved Strategy has a target to reduce community-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to net zero by 2040. The City’s target is one of the most ambitious in North America.

Approximately 20 members will be selected, for a term of three years, through the City’s public appointments process. The CAG will meet about four times per year, primarily in person, with remote options available to enable members to respond to personal commitments and potential changes in community health guidelines. The first meeting will be held in fall 2022. Members can opt to join additional working groups, which will establish their own meeting schedules. The total time commitment would be 20 to 40 hours per year.

Applications to join the CAG will be accepted until July 20, 11:59 p.m. Visit here to learn more about the application process.
