Town of Canmore

Council Clips – February 18, 2020

Greenhouse Gas Inventory

The Greenhouse Gas inventory is completed regularly to measure Canmore’s progress towards our Climate Action Plan targets.  The 2018 inventory, presented today, estimates a very slight decline in the Canmore’s corporate and community GHG emissions - not enough to achieve the targets we’ve committed to. For more information about the Climate Action Plan and related documents visit https://canmore.ca/residents/stewardship-of-the-environment/climate-change-adaptation-plan/climate-action-plan.

Snow Event Debrief

Between December 20 and 22, 2019, 45-60 cm of snow fell in Canmore. A total of 18,000 cubic meters of snow was removed. Our supervisor of streets and roads provided details about the Town of Canmore’s response to this unusual event as well as a list of lessons learned, including creating a more robust snow emergency plan, training staff, and improving communications.
