Webinar: The climate benefits of ground source heat pumps
The Partners for Climate Protection program is a partnership between ICLEI Canada – Local Governments for Sustainability and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.
Learn how installing ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) to heat and cool your community buildings can help reduce your municipality’s carbon footprint.
Are you interested in reducing your municipality’s carbon footprint? Join us on March 29 from 1 to 3 pm ET for a free webinar on GHSP systems. You’ll hear from industry experts on the benefits of GHSP technology, including the business case for their installation and how to overcome common challenges. In this webinar, you’ll:
- Discover the benefits of GHSPs, including how they can help you meet your climate goals
- Hear about how geoexchange can work within your community
- Learn how GHSPs can fit with the rural, urban and suburban contexts
Learn more and register on the Partners for Climate Protection website.
Webinar: Reflections and Resources from the Agents of Change Project
We gratefully acknowledge that the Agents of Change project was undertaken with the financial support of the Government of Canada.
Learn how ten Canadian municipalities built climate engagement volunteer programs to support municipal climate goals, and discover resources to help you do the same in your community.
ICLEI Canada’s Agents of Change Project helped participating municipalities conceptualize impactful local volunteer programs tailored to their community and climate mitigation and/or adaptation goals. Through a collaborative cohort model, participants explored key considerations like governance structures, partnership models, recruitment techniques, Indigenous engagement, inclusion and equity, approaches to social media, and more.
Join us Wednesday April 12 to learn about their experiences and discover resources that can support you in building your own climate volunteer engagement program.
2023 Livable Cities Forum: From Intention to Implementation

This year’s LCF is hosted by the City of Mississauga in partnership with ICLEI Canada and the Canadian Urban Institute, and is sponsored by Co-operators.
Gain insights on leading edge energy transition and climate adaptation practices to build resilient, equitable, and livable communities.
Most Canadian cities and towns were not built with a vision of a net zero, resilient, and sustainable future. So what does the transition to resilient, equitable, and livable communities look like? How can we embrace diversity and inclusion in the process? And, ultimately, how can we accelerate implementation to keep pace with challenges municipalities face? Join us September 25 to 27 to explore these questions through the lens of “Intention to Implementation”.
LCF has been exploring how to take action at the local level to make Canadian communities more livable since 2011. It is the go-to event for local leaders, urban professionals, and on-the-ground practitioners working to transition to net zero, advance low carbon resilience, and build an inclusive and equitable future. The event attracts over 300 delegates from across the country and is widely known for its high caliber practical sessions, diverse speakers, and meaningful networking opportunities.
Save the date and stay tuned! We will announce the program and open registration shortly.
