CAFES Ottawa & the City of Ottawa host a Climate Resiliency Community Dialogue for Rideau-Rockcliffe residents - May 30

Community Collective Climate Resiliency Dialogue (Wards 12 & 13)

As we continue to feel the impacts of climate change in the coming decades, it is critical that we prepare our communities. The City of Ottawa is currently developing a Climate Resiliency Strategy to identify Ottawa’s largest vulnerabilities and create an action plan to mitigate these in the face of climate change.

The City’s Climate Change and Resiliency unit is looking to hear from communities across Ottawa to inform the Climate Resiliency Strategy and programming, recognizing that people will face different impacts based on many factors including geographic location, age, gender, race, and income.

CAFES has entered into agreement with The City of Ottawa to organize approximately 10 in person Climate Resiliency Community Dialogues in partnership with Community and Citizens Associations across Ottawa! These Community Dialogues will focus on climate resiliency and community preparedness for climate impacts such as extreme weather events, flooding, and higher temperatures. The workshops will be taking place between May and early June.

The goal of these dialogues is to foster discussion around what climate impacts residents and communities are most concerned about, how prepared they feel, and what strategies can mitigate these impacts. The insights from these workshops will be considered in the city’s creation of a Climate Resiliency Strategy, and will be shared with host Community and Citizens Associations. CAFES will organize follow up Climate Caucus meetings to facilitate information sharing after the workshops.

We will be organizing a workshop in the following wards:

Wards 12 & 13 - Lindenlea, Manor Park, New Edinburgh, Overbrook, Rockcliffe Park and Vanier

May 30, 6:30 to 8:30 pm

Location: Richelieu-Vanier Community Centre, 300 Des Peres-Blancs Avenue
