City of Victoria
Meeting the Climate Change Challenge (MC3)
A new MC3 case study synopsis has been released, featuring featuring the City of Victoria. Victoria is a community of 78,000 people located on the Southern tip of Vancouver Island, and serves as the metropolitan core for British Columbia’s Capital Region District (CRD). Victoria has taken on the provincial target of reducing greenhouse gases to 33% less than the levels of 2007 by 2020 through a community-driven energy and emissions plan. An aging citizen population and aged infrastructure, combined with the economic downturn, reinforced the need for anticipatory planning in order to minimize potential costs and risks arising from climate and energy uncertainty.
