Green Communities Committee Working Group Membership

The Provincial Government-UBCM Green Communities Committee was created to develop strategies, actions, supports and incentives to help implement the Climate Action Charter. Three working groups were established to advise the GCC in carrying out this mandate.

These working groups were composed of local government sustainability practitioners, UBCM and provincial government advisors, experts with crown corporations such as BC Transit, BC Hydro and TransLink, and representatives from other key organizations. Toolkit.bc.ca is the first output of these dedicated and resourceful groups.
