When the entire town of Lytton, BC, burned down on June 30, 2021, the community decided to rebuild better. Their process offers lessons for other communities facing wildfire risks.
SSG collaborated with Lakewood, Ohio and Ames, Iowa to identify the role of specific federal funds through detailed financial modeling. They are, to our knowledge, the first municipalities to account for federal funding from the Infrastructure Bill and Inflation Reduction Act in their climate action plans—setting them up to save hundreds of millions of dollars by taking climate action.
The latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change underlines that the window of opportunity to limit global heating to 1.5°C is closing quickly– and cities are critical for helping humanity through the window if they act immediately and strategically.
Municipalities across Canada are excited about leading creative projects to tackle the climate crisis. At the FCM Sustainable Communities Conference earlier this month, SSG had a chance to hear from them and discuss new developments in the climate action space.

As organizations owned by the people they benefit, the […]
On November 3, 2022, the City of Edmonton released the first municipal carbon budget report in Canada. The report indicated that Edmonton is set to blow past its carbon budget of 176 million tonnes by 2037 and fall short of its target to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Though this news is alarming, it’s promising […]
SSG’s work is carried out on unceded and unsurrendered Indigenous territories, ranging from the traditional lands of the Michif Piyii in the North to the Huilliche in the South; from Hul'qumi'num Peoples in the West to the Mi'kma’qi in the East.
SSG recognizes that land acknowledgements alone are insufficient. We are committed to educating ourselves about the lands we are on and ensuring that our work contributes to healing and decolonization.
