Alberta Climate Leaders

Capacity Building

Resilient communities, a diversified economy, strong investments that will chart our future. You know where you want to lead your community, now you have the support to help get you there.

Alberta Climate Leaders is an initiative of the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre and the Community Energy Association. No matter your starting point, Alberta Climate Leaders can help you advance the climate and energy solutions your community needs.

From practical tools and current research to peer networking, coaching and mentorships, we provide elected officials with the right resources to build a resilient future for your residents.

The first three components of the program are launching in Fall 2022:

Alberta Municipal Climate Leadership Council

Join a network of your peers who share your interest and commitment to climate action at the local level. As of September 2022, we are now recruiting elected officials to join the new Alberta Municipal Climate Leadership Council. As one of our first members, you will gain access to:

  • Education and resources tailored to elected officials across Alberta
  • Peer-to-peer learning and networking
  • In-person events celebrating success stories

If you have questions about the council, please email rpatel@mccac.ca.
