    Accelerate climate action in your community

  • 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:


    <5% have set a GHG reduction target

    <1% have signed the UN Compact of Mayors

    <0.1% have committed to carbon neutrality by 2050

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

    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 to provincial and federal levels.

    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:

    National Climate League Stat Tracker

    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 webinars on how to training webinars to learn to navigate the database visualize data, and speak to the media. Finally, provide feedback on the process and indicators to help improve next season.
