We’re preparing for climate change in Mississauga. We’ve already felt the effects with an increase in extreme weather events like seasonal flooding, extreme rainfall, ice storms, and some of the hottest summers on record.
Climate change has damaged our homes, businesses, shorelines, roads and other infrastructure. It has cost us millions of dollars in cleanup and repairs, while impacting the lives of our residents.
We’re committed to decreasing our carbon footprint and preparing the community for the impacts of a changing climate.
