The new database and report from the Municipal Net-Zero Action Research Partnership (N-ZAP) provide an important snapshot of the state of climate action in local governments across Canada.

Le Partenariat de recherche-action pour la carboneutralité municipale (P-RAC) a publié une nouvelle base de données et un nouveau rapport fournissant un aperçu important de l'état de l'action climatique dans les gouvernements municipaux de tout le Canada.

In the PCP hub, members can connect with peers, ask questions, and stay up to date on the latest climate related events and resources available from around the country.

Au sein du réseau des PPC, les membres communiquent entre eux, posent des questions et se tiennent au courant des plus récents événements et ressources en matière de climat de toutes les régions du pays.

The Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program, from ICLEI—Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI Canada) and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, helps your municipality do its part. It consists of a five-step Milestone Framework that guides you as you take action against climate change by reducing emissions in your municipality. PCP receives funding from FCM's Green Municipal Fund and ICLEI Canada.

PCP membership is free and gives you access to tools, networking venues, events, case studies and other informational resources. Members also have access to a PCP Secretariat that offers coaching and technical assistance support.
