Government of Canada Launches Interactive Website on Clean Growth and Climate Change
The Government of Canada has announced the launch of a new interactive website to seek input from Canadians, including Indigenous peoples, on how to address climate change and promote clean growth.
This engagement tool will allow Canadians to be part of a national conversation on climate change, share their ideas and see what others are saying. This is an opportunity to provide feedback on what individuals, families, organizations, communities, businesses and governments can do to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change.
Contributions received via the interactive website will be reviewed by members of the four different working groups that have been created to provide recommendations to First Ministers on:
•how and where to reduce emissions
•ideas for new innovation, technology and job creation
•how to put a price on carbon
•preparing for the impacts of climate change
Canadians are encouraged to submit ideas online by June 1, 2016, in order for them to be reviewed by working group members. However, it should be noted that the Government of Canada will continue to accept ideas after this date. The website will also offer Canadians the tools they need to hold town halls to engage their communities from the grassroots.
Submissions can be made online through www.canada.ca/climateaction
