Client Town of Caledon
Location Caledon, Ontario, Canada
Schedule March 2019 – April 2020
Caledon is a rural Town of approximately 70,000 residents located in the Greater Toronto Area. The Town covers 700 square kilometres and consists of a combination of hamlets and village centres, nested amongst prime agricultural and protected natural heritage lands. Projecting a doubling of its population by 2050, the Town was looking to update its Community Climate Change Action Plan. The update required new and revised mitigation actions, as well as new considerations for adaptation and resilience. The Town is also undertaking an update of its Official Plan, for which SSG is conducting a policy scan and discussion paper identifying opportunities to integrate the outcomes of the Action Plan and climate change policies.
In partnership with whatIf? technologies, SSG used CityInsight to model energy and emissions for the Town, conducted best practice scans for adaptation and mitigation actions, and led engagement workshops to solicit feedback from community members and other local stakeholders.
