Climate Action Advisory Group

A group of stakeholders have been assembled from a range of sectors within the community of Summerland to discuss and review ideas for Summerland's Climate Action Plan. Volunteers signed up at both open houses and we had more than enough names to choose from. All positions have been filled. Thank you to everyone who volunteered!

Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP)

Climate action is a key provincial priority and local governments are key partners in helping to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and create complete, compact and energy-efficient communities.

The Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP) is a conditional grant program that provides funding to BC Climate Action Charter (Charter) signatories equivalent to one hundred percent of the carbon taxes they pay directly. This funding supports local governments in their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and move forward on achieving their Charter goals.
