LC3 is an ambitious plan grounded in 28 years of experience. Canada cannot reach its climate targets without reducing emissions from its cities. Yet many promising urban low-carbon solutions fail to progress from proven concept to full-scale implementation. The Atmospheric Fund (TAF) has been demonstrating low-carbon ideas and preparing them for scale-up in Toronto since 1991. Now, TAF’s model is being adapted for use in other cities, through Low Carbon Cities Canada (LC3). LC3 is a partnership between seven local centres and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. LC3 will help city regions to reach their full emissions reduction potential while at the same time unlocking co-benefits for local communities.
The seven local centres are: Vancouver & the Lower Mainland; Edmonton; Calgary; Ottawa; Greater Toronto & Hamilton area; Montreal Metropolitan Community, and the Halifax Region.
