Learn about the Project

On March 4, 2021, City staff presented the Environment, Infrastructure and Community Services Committee with a staff report introducing the work done to date on the Climate Resilient Burlington project. Also included with the report were:

  • Climate Projections for Burlington Region which highlighted Burlington’s baseline data (1976-2005) under the categories of temperature, hot weather, cold weather, precipitation and agriculture with future projections (2021-2050 and 2051-2080) under lower and higher (business as usual) greenhouse gas emission scenarios using the Climate Atlas of Canada. Data for extreme weather and Lake Ontario was also included where available from additional sources.

The Climate Change Impacts Story Map was also released which showcases historical weather events in Burlington which could become more frequent in the future.
