Summary Report: Indigenous Strategic Discussions on Toronto's Climate Strategies
The City is exploring collaborative approaches to involve Indigenous Traditional Knowledges (ITK) and Indigenous communities in designing and delivering urban climate action in Toronto. To initiate the development of the framework, the City partnered with Indigenous Climate Action (ICA) to design, host, and report on the outcomes of a workshop with Indigenous communities on urban climate action. This report summarizes the learnings from the workshop.
Benefits of Climate Action - Research
The Environment & Energy Division commissioned three reports to explore how best to quantify the health, economic, equity and resilience benefits of the actions we take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Toronto. This is an emerging field of research and these reports are a foundation upon which to build in partnership with stakeholders and academia:

City of Toronto Engagement Reports
Community Engagement Reports
From August 2015 to July 2016, TransformTO’s first phase of engagement encouraged residents to contribute their ideas to a shared vision of a low-carbon Toronto in 2050. A variety of engagement and outreach tools promoted participation from residents, community groups and stakeholders online and at events. More than 2,000 residents identified ideas and actions that will help build a healthy, equitable and prosperous Toronto as well as achieve our 80 per cent greenhouse gas emissions reduction target by 2050. All of the community feedback, community-submitted reports and other submissions were compiled and summarized in a Community Engagement Report.
