Building Community Resilience: Key Lessons from Twelve Canadian Communities

This webinar will present QUEST’s report on Building Community Resilience: Key Lessons from Twelve Canadian Communities. This report presents key practical and on-the-ground findings from QUEST’s Municipalities and Utilities Partnering for Community Resilience Initiative, a two-year initiative funded by NRCAN and FCM.

Extreme weather events such as floods, snow and hail storms, blizzards, and sea rising levels put energy infrastructure under pressure to adapt. The webinar will review key lessons learned from the twelve municipalities and their energy utilities that participated in this initiative including:

  • Municipalities’ most common strengths and vulnerabilities to specific climate hazards;
  • Key recommendations to advance climate adaptation, strengthen the resilience of energy systems, and augment emergency preparedness plans;
  • Recommendations, tips, and resources for municipalities interested in developing effective resilience planning strategies.

Learn more about the Municipalities and Utilities Partnering for Community Resilience Initiative.

Thursday, February, 20th, 2020 12:30 PM AT / 11:30 AM EST / 9:30 AM MST​
