  • How It Works

    What if these local climate initiatives coordinated their efforts to maximize impact?

     

    Through broad stakeholder engagement, Hubs build public support for political leadership on climate change.

     

    Of the 3,608 local governments in Canada:

     

    4.2% have set a GHG reduction target

    0.6% have signed the UN Compact of Mayors

    0.08% have committed to 100% renewable energy by 2050

    International accords - though essential - are insufficient to achieve reduction targets. Citizens, businesses, and civil society actors must step up to support implementation.

    Municipalities are key in the fight against climate change. They have jurisdiction over transportation, waste management, building bylaws and land-use planning, and can act as laboratories to experiment before solutions are scaled up.

    Hubs help unify voices around a shared vision for decarbonization and advance their communities along the milestone process set out by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities:

    Who's got game among Canadian cities?

    We want municipal data. A guide for cities.

    Data collection season begins each August, although citizens are welcome to use these templates all year round to request that their municipality submit data to the NCL Stat Tracker.

     

    Municipal officials, this one's for you. Submit these indicators one by one using this form, or by batches using this worksheet. Only through your generous transparency is the process of informing citizens and progressing towards healthier, more efficient, and carbon-neutral cities possible. View submitted data in the NCL Stat Tracker or provide feedback on the indicators and process.

    A guide for citizens

    We live in the information age, but still can't answer some of the most important questions. How does your city stack up to its peers on climate: a leader or a laggard?

     

    Find your city on the Hub map to see what has been submitted to the NCL Stat Tracker. Watch the training webinars to learn to navigate the database, visualize data, and speak to the media. Finally, provide feedback on the process & indicators to help improve next season.

    Following COP25, The Climate Reality Project Canada unveiled the 2019 NCL Standings and held webinar featuring best practices from three of the leading municipalities on February 12th.
