Being a member of the Partners for Climate Protection (PCP) program means being a part of a nation-wide movement of municipalities dedicated to becoming leaders in local climate action. Through PCP support, Canadian municipalities of all sizes from coast to coast to coast have developed over 420 projects aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

In addition to providing technical support, training and resources to related to GHG emissions reductions, PCP has created a strong municipal network across the country. Through our events, community of practice meetings and the PCP Hub, members are encouraged to share knowledge and learn from one another. The PCP network continues to grow and its members, small and large, demonstrate their commitment to climate action.

The Hub

The PCP Hub is our peer-to-peer online network. Available only to PCP members and key community groups (non-profits working in the sector), this platform provides a space to connect, ask questions and share successes.

Through the Hub, municipal staff and elected officials have access to the best resources and expertise on local climate action. The PCP Hub is also a great way to learn about the latest funding opportunities and access resources related to climate and energy.
