Thank you for your involvement in the development of the Community Energy & Emissions Plan.

As you know, the City of Thunder Bay 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.

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.

Who will help create the Plan?

The project will bring together: energy experts, City staff and officials, local businesses, institutions, industry, not-for-profit organizations, and the community.

SSG is the lead consultant on the development of the CEEP, and is a workers co-operative focused on state of the art community energy planning, climate action planning and climate change adaptation projects. SSG has completed community energy plans and climate action plans for more than sixty municipalities over the past fifteen years, both very large and small, including Greater Sudbury, Guelph, Region of York, the City of Toronto, and many others across Canada.

SSG has engaged Arbora Management Services to assist in local engagement and workshop delivery for the CEEP process.

    A climate emergency response is a specific approach to tackling climate change that seeks to mobilize and act at a scale and speed that will restore a safe climate, with the least possible loss and damage.

    Since the City of Thunder Bay began to work on its Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) in late Fall 2019, City Council joined dozens of other city council’s across Canada, and countless more globally, to declare a state of Climate Emergency. This declaration is symbolic of the City’s strong commitment to ambitious climate change mitigations actions.

    This questionnaire is meant to solicit ideas

    This questionnaire is meant to solicit ideas from the CEEP Stakeholder Advisor Group on how the CEEP should respond to the Climate Emergency Declaration. For some inspiration, we have attached the City of Vancouver’s Climate Emergency response report.
