Climate change is the biggest challenge of our generation. It is a sustainability cornerstone issue that needs to be addressed to achieve sustainable development and ensure that our efforts for long-term recovery are not undermined by the risks that climate change presents. Share your vision for the Resilient St. John's of the future.

The Resilient St. John’s Climate Plan focuses on this sustainability issue by addressing energy and climate change impacts. The plan will identify a 30-year Climate Action Strategy to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, while re-enforcing efforts to stabilize energy costs by supporting energy efficiency. It will also provide strategies to further prepare the City to address the challenges and opportunities presented by the impacts from climate change.

In 2021, be part of the conversation by:

  • Participate in the activity to help identify low-carbon actions that could be taken to help St. John's achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, and about what is important to you when considering climate action:
  • Also, use the hazard mapping tool to identify any hazards you may have experienced in the past.

Note: If you are interested in hosting a Climate Conversation workshop, the City is glad to support your efforts by sharing resources and information. Please contact us to get a copy of the City Do it Yourself (DIY) Climate Workshop tool and guide, which was developed to support community groups with information and proposed questions to host a discussion about climate change.

    City staff is gathering the community’s ideas and feedback to help inform the community-wide energy and emissions reduction plan. Individuals, businesses and all stakeholders are needed to share their experiences and contribute their thoughts to help shape St. John's energy future.


    We need your input to help identify the low-carbon actions that could be taken to help St. John’s achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Also, to tell us about what is important to you when considering a low-carbon action. You can spend as much time as you like on the questions below. That is part of their design. Jump off the surveys whenever you like and review the collective results to date.

    1: Which criteria is more important to consider when selecting actions for St. John's clean energy transition?

    2: Which action do you think the community should prioritize to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions?
