What is Low Carbon Cities Canada (LC3)?

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.
