LATEST NEWS: SNAP TRAINING
SNAP invited to lead FCM training session “Retrofitting Neighbourhoods to Achieve Your Sustainability Goals
Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) SNAP staff was invited by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) to host a training session at the Sustainable Communities Conference in Ottawa Feb 6-8, 2018. The sold-out session was attended by mayors, councillors and senior municipal staff from across the country, all interested in new ideas for tackling urban renewal and climate action.
The team presented the SNAP model approach, action plan process and numerous implementation case studies. This was followed by a panel discussion with municipal partner representatives from both the City of Markham and the City of Brampton. They spoke about the practical realities of implementation and how SNAP can play an important role.
Session attendees participated in interactive discussions at their tables and in plenary format. There was great dialogue about experiences from across the country and common challenges and potential solutions to community retrofit such as integration across departments and how best to increase uptake in retrofit programs.
