Make a difference in the community
Sustainability Grants Program
The Sustainability Grants Program provides funds to support small-scale, community-based environment and sustainability projects that can help reach our climate action and ecosystem health goals. Each successful project will receive approximately $1,000 to $5,000.
Climate Action Advisory Committee
The Climate Action Advisory Committee provides advice, community perspective, and support towards advancing policies and actions to achieve our climate action targets, protect and enhance biodiversity and ecosystem health, and ensure the District is resilient to future climate change impacts.
What you can do at home
Switch to a heat pump
We're working with the other North Shore municipalities and the province’s CleanBC program to help homeowners make the switch to energy efficient, low-carbon heat pumps for home heating and cooling.
Help expand the urban forest canopy
We're providing free trees to homeowners to help us expand the urban forest canopy. An expanded urban forest can capture and store carbon, filter air pollutants, stabilize soils, and more.
Reaching our climate action and environmental health goals
We're taking action in six key areas to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, protect and enhance ecosystem health and biodiversity, and improve our resilience to climate change.
