Hundreds of Canadian municipalities have declared a climate emergency, and cities across Canada are looking for new and effective ways to reduce the carbon footprint of their communities.

Any effective municipal response needs to address transportation as a leading source of emissions, and any sustainable transportation strategy needs to enable the rapid adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEV). But how can municipalities leverage their authority and community connections to accelerate ZEV uptake? And which programs and policies should they prioritize?

Based on extensive modelling of municipal ZEV strategies coast-to-coast, the Low Carbon Cities Canada (LC3) network and the Green Municipal Fund (GMF) teamed up with Dunsky Energy Consulting to identify and prioritize the highest-impact municipal actions for electrifying how people, goods and services move around.

In this webinar, Joe Rogers from GMF and Ian Klesmer from The Atmospheric Fund (TAF) will present the results of this first-of-its-kind, pan-Canadian collaboration. They will touch on:

• Why ZEVs are an essential component of municipal climate plans
• How to avoid the most common pitfalls of municipal ZEV strategies
• Which municipal actions can address the biggest barriers to ZEV adoption
• How these actions can be designed in an equitable and financially sustainable way
• What you can do to enable these high-impact actions in your local community

 Registration is free for this webinar. Please note, all participants will receive a confirmation email from Zoom and link to join the workshop through Zoom Webinars.

All registrants will be provided with a link to the recordings and the presentation slides after the webinar.
