Ontario is investing in programs to improve ecosystem health in urban and rural communities across the province in order to help fight climate change. These programs are part of Ontario's Climate Change Action Plan and are funded by proceeds from the province's carbon market.
Kathryn McGarry, Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry, was in Guelph today to announce support for two programs that aim to reduce greenhouse gas pollution. They include:
Fighting climate change while protecting the environment is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“Our government is committed to increasing our knowledge of how natural systems can store greenhouse gases, and investing in successful tree planting to create more forests near our cities, parks and communities across Ontario. Forests are critical to reducing carbon in the atmosphere, and these projects are a key part of our fight against climate change.”
“Our government is making important investments that will strengthen our agricultural system while helping us lead the fight against climate change. I’m thrilled to see this kind of announcement being made right here in Guelph.”
