Town of Canmore

Stewardship of the Environment

Environmental stewardship is one of the guiding principles for the community and the Town of Canmore.  Our commitment to sustainability is demonstrated in much of the work we do and through the programs and services we offer. Our Environmental Sustainability Action Plan (ESAP) was developed to update, integrate and expand the Town’s strategies, programs and initiatives related to environmental stewardship and ensure effective implementation of the community’s vision related to environmental stewardship.  The ESAP includes goals, targets and actions related to energy and climate protection, resource conservation and waste management, water management, toxin reduction and community engagement. You can download the ESAP  pdf here (2.27 MB) .
