Local Program Helps Build Climate Resilience in Black Creek Neighbourhood
The Ontario Climate Consortium (OCC) team is excited to share that our colleagues in the Sustainable Neighbourhood Retrofit Action Plan (SNAP) Program have recently received global recognition for the work that they are doing in the Black Creek neighbourhood. SNAP is a flagship program developed by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) that is a proven solution for sustainable urban renewal that places neighbourhoods at the centre of the implementation framework.
More specifically, the Black Creek SNAP in Toronto was included in the 2016 Cities100 publication as one of 100 leading city climate change solutions from around the world. Cities100 is published by Sustainia, C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and Realdania to identify leading climate action solutions that also provide other social co-benefits – a core element of the SNAP model. SNAP’s inclusion is a great vote of confidence in this groundbreaking TRCA program.
Numerous staff at the TRCA contribute to making SNAP a success and this recognition is a reflection of the great work they all do. We’d like to congratulate the team and wish them all the best with their work going forward as they continue to build climate resilience in neighbourhoods across the Greater Toronto Area.
