SNAP in the News


Sustainia Cities100 2016 banner

The Black Creek SNAP has been included in the 2016 Cities100 publication as one of 100 leading urban climate change solutions from around the world.

Cities100 is published by Sustainia, C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and Realdania to identify leading climate action solutions that also provide other social co-benefits — a core element of the SNAP model.

SNAP’s inclusion in Cities100 is a great vote of confidence in this groundbreaking TRCA program.
