Sea level rise community workshops
Rising sea levels on the North Shore — a consequence of climate change — are predicted to present financial and other challenges to our communities in the long term, if left unaddressed.
To minimize this risk, North Shore partners (District of North Vancouver, City of North Vancouver, District of West Vancouver, the Squamish Nation, Port of Vancouver, and North Shore Emergency Management) are developing a Sea Level Rise Strategy to help us prepare for a one-metre increase in sea levels by 2100, and a two-metre increase in sea levels by 2200.
How you can get involved
We are gathering feedback from DNV property owners who live within or near the sea level rise study area, and who have recently received letters from us about this project. We would also like to hear from members of local community organizations.
We want to get your thoughts on the sea level rise adaptation approaches that we are exploring, and will consider your input — along with the technical advice and best practices from our consultants — as we develop the draft Sea Level Rise Strategy.
