Training-the-Trainers: Engaging Stakeholders on Climate Change Assessment

Training-the-Trainers worked with 18 communities across the Great Lakes watershed to better understand their local climate impacts and risks. The project helped municipalities convene local workshops to learn how to use climate change modelling data and identify local vulnerabilities, assess and prioritize their risks, and begin developing adaptation plans. Participating municipalities included:

  • Wawa
  • Nipigon
  • Kenora
  • Norfolk County
  • Waterloo Region (including Kitchener, Cambridge, and City of Waterloo)
  • Meaford
  • Penetanguishene
  • Sudbury
  • Halton Hills
  • Caledon
  • Hamilton
  • Mississauga
  • Catherine’s
  • Burlington
  • Ajax

This project was made possible by the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, under the Canada-Ontario Agreement (COA) Respecting the Great Lakes.
