How can Port Moody respond and adapt to climate change? Share your ideas with us!


The City invites you to provide input as we develop a Climate Action Plan – a community-wide strategy to help the City and its residents adapt to climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to warming of the Earth.

In British Columbia, we’re already experiencing the effects of climate change, such as extreme precipitation and an increase in average temperatures. A Climate Action Plan will help us adapt to the changes we’re already seeing, and reduce the impact of the changes that are yet to come. Between March and October 2019, you’ll have a variety of opportunities to share your ideas and provide feedback as we develop a Climate Action Plan for Port Moody.

How is global climate change affecting Port Moody and how can our community adapt? The City of Port Moody and the Port Moody Public Library hosted a conversation with local experts at the Climate Change Dialogue. Topics included providing information on the  Port Moody climate context, reducing our carbon footprint, and creating urban climate resiliency. Attendees  heard from, and engaged in conversation with the following local experts:

  • Laura Sampliner, Sustainability and Energy Coordinator, City of Port Moody;
  • Ralph Wells, Community Energy Manager, University of British Columbia; and
  • Christine Callihoo, Senior Land Use and Community Planner, Resilience Environmental
    Solutions.
