The City of Thunder Bay has begun the planning process for the creation of a Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP): a community-wide plan for getting Thunder Bay from the fossil-fuel dependent city it is today, to a low-carbon city of the future.

The CEEP will be shaped by a community engagement process, to be completed by January 2021. The completed CEEP will provide a slate of ambitious, long-term actions for the city corporation and the broader community.

Community Engagement During COVID-19

COVID-19 is transforming our world and affecting all of our daily lives. Planning for energy is one of the critical challenges we face. Help us continue this important work as we engage with stakeholders to develop the Community Energy & Emissions Plan to identify and promote policies, practices, and an approach to energy that meets our needs and promotes sustainability into the future Your feedback will help working groups identify priority low-carbon actions for the City when they meet for intensive workshops in late spring/early summer of 2020. If you would like to participate in one of these more intensive sessions, please provide your email at the end of the online survey.

Why are we developing a Community Energy and Emissions Plan?

The CEEP will help Thunder Bay understand its current and projected energy use in a business-as-usual and a low-carbon future. The goal is to explore energy opportunities as a community, and create a vision for a local energy future that supports jobs and local economic development while improving our quality of life and addressing climate change impacts.

The project will bring together: energy experts, City staff and officials, local business, institutions, industry, not-for-profit organizations, and the community. The completed CEEP will provide a slate of ambitious, long-term actions for the City and Community.

In 2019, the City of Thunder Bay received funding from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities along with the Province of Ontario’s Municipal Energy Plan program for the Plan's creation.
