Transition 2050 Residential Retrofit Acceleration Strategy

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) has joined eight other regional and municipal governments across British Columbia (BC) to receive up to $400,000 in funding from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program for the Transition 2050 Residential Retrofit Acceleration Project (T2050 project).

BC’s Climate Change Accountability Act aims to reduce the province’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 40 per cent below 2007 levels by 2030, 60 per cent by 2040, and 80 per cent by 2050. The Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) and Comox Valley Sustainability Strategy adopted the same targets. The purpose of the T2050 project is to accelerate building energy retrofits as one of many strategies to reduce community GHG emissions and bring the CVRD closer to the climate action goals in the RGS.
