The City of Chilliwack worked with Stantec to develop Air Quality, Energy and Greenhouse Gas Action Plans for the community and the City's corporate operations in 2011/12.

A wide variety of GHG reduction activities have been completed since the plans were developed.

The City is hiring a consultant to carry out a comprehensive review and prepare new Air Quality and Climate Change Action Plans in 2020.  This process will include extensive public and stakeholder consultation.  Details will be added to this website as the project gets underway and the engagement and consultation process is finalized.

Provincial legislation requires all communities to have GHG reduction targets and actions in their Official Community Plans. Based on the activities in the Action Plan and provincial/federal initiatives, the City has developed the following target:

Chilliwack will aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions per capita to 20% below 2007 levels by 2020. Achieving this target will require a joint effort by the federal and provincial governments, City of Chilliwack, and community members. The City of Chilliwack will initiate programs that fall within our legislative jurisdiction by implementing the activities and policies in the City’s Air Quality, Energy and Greenhouse Gas Action Plan.

Corporate Action Plan

The Corporate Action Plan outlines activities that the City of Chilliwack can undertake to reduce air emissions and conserve energy. The actions involve the City's buildings, fleets, utilities and lighting.
