Creating cooler Canadian cities

GCC’s new National Mini Forest Pilot program — in collaboration with Dougan & Associates, Canadian Geographic and Wilder Climate Solutions — aims to plant 2,800 trees in five pilot communities in 2023.


The new Home Energy Rebate Plus program offers Ontario residents up to $10,000 for energy efficient retrofits and up to $600 for energy audits helping you improve your home’s energy efficiency, save money, and increase home comfort.

We support grassroots-led climate action through
leadership, connection, training, and funding.
