Municipal Energy Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Vaughan is conducting a comprehensive Municipal Energy Plan Revision that will provide a low-carbon transition strategy for the city. A Municipal Energy Plan is a strategic planning document and action framework that outlines how a community can increase energy efficiency, reduce emissions and transition to a low-carbon community.

The Municipal Energy Plan Revision is identified as a specific action in the Climate Emergency Declaration, endorsed by Council in June 2019. The plan will be rooted in setting a science-based target and will identify a date and pathway for reducing per capita greenhouse gas emissions by about half by 2030, and reaching net-zero emissions in Vaughan by 2050.

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?

The Municipal Energy Plan Update survey is now closed. Visit vaughan.ca/MEP to learn about future engagement opportunities.

From May to July 2022, we asked citizens and stakeholders what actions the City and its community members should take to increase energy efficiency, reduce emissions and mitigate climate change. Valuable ideas and feedback were provided through an online survey and two interactive community workshops. A recording of the first workshop can be found below.

Thank you to those who participated! The insights and feedback collected will help the City understand the community’s priorities and needs in developing climate actions that can be implemented successfully.


WHAT DOES A MUNICIPAL ENERGY PLAN DO?

A Municipal Energy Plan is a strategic planning document and action framework that outlines how a community can increase energy efficiency, reduce emissions and limit the transition to a low-carbon community. The Municipal Energy Plan is being updated to:

  • set out a pathway to reduce per capita greenhouse gas emissions by about half by 2030, and to reach the target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, recognizing the unique context and constraints that exist in Vaughan.
  • consider the role of the City in driving and supporting action.
  • identify how other affected stakeholders can participate in transitioning to a low-carbon community.
  • inform the Official Plan Review that is underway to update the Vaughan Official Plan 2010.

    This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and is organized into the following sections:

    1. Proposed climate actions for Vaughan’s Big Moves (transportation, renewable energy, buildings and waste)
    2. A bit about yourself, if you choose to provide this information, so we can understand who is providing feedback and who we haven’t heard from

    The survey will be available until Friday, June 17

    Feedback you provide through this survey will help shape the City’s updated Municipal Energy Plan. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Ash Faulkner, Senior Planner, Policy Planning and Special Programs at mep@vaughan.ca or 905-832-8585, ext. 8733.
