AMO response to Expert Panel’s report on climate change adaptation in Ontario.
AMO agrees and supports the concepts and goals recommended to form the basis of Ontario’s climate change action plan. AMO is also encouraged that the Expert Panel has noted that if municipalities are to be effective partners in the adaptation plan then information training and tools must be made available for planners, policy staff, and municipal councils to foster the development of climate resilient communities in Ontario.

AMO also believe that if there are planning implications arising from the Province’s strategy the most appropriate mechanism is through official plan reviews.
