About

Since 2009, the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre has been empowering Alberta’s municipalities to be leaders in climate change action by providing support for local energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. 

Our vision

All Alberta municipalities are inspired to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to build climate resilient communities.

Our mission 

The Municipal Climate Change Action Centre provides funding, technical assistance, and education to help Alberta municipalities address climate change through energy management plans, energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions.

Participating in our programs just makes sense, saving money and reducing your environmental impact, it’s a win-win for Albertans. Municipalities work hard to provide the best for their communities, and we help them see real savings and make real change.
