Register to attend one of the October public consultation events for the next TransformTO Implementation Plan 2021-2023. An online survey and resources to help you host your own consultation event will launch October 7. See below for more details.


What is our vision for a low-carbon Toronto? How will we reduce our greenhouse gas emissions? These questions and more were the focus of the community conversations in 2016 and 2017 that helped to shape TransformTO, the City’s Climate Action Strategy.

The City’s Environment and Energy Division is currently coordinating the preparation of the TransformTO Implementation Plan 2021- 2023. The plan will build on the actions currently underway as part of the first set of short-term climate actions for 2017 to 2020, and recommend climate actions  within key sectors to support the achievement of the City’s greenhouse gas reduction targets. The Plan will be presented to City Council in spring 2020.

Opportunities for residents and stakeholders to provide input continue this fall.

A Residents’ Reference Panel is a group of randomly-selected residents tasked with examining an issue in-depth and making consensus recommendations to governments on behalf of their fellow residents.

In June 2019, the City sent a letter to 12,500 randomly-selected households inviting recipients to volunteer to join the Panel. From the pool of volunteers, members were randomly-selected to ensure broad representation from across the city.

Over three days this summer, the 30-member Panel learned about the various ways Toronto can take action on climate change and worked together to recommend climate actions and priorities for the City to undertake from 2021 to 2023 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

In addition, a public meeting was hosted on August 8 at Scarborough Civic Centre, where 80 members of the public, including the Panel members, deliberated on the priorities for climate action in Toronto.
