As the province plans for recovery, the town is beginning to carefully and responsibly bring back services and reopen some public spaces, programs and services. Provincial emergency orders and the town’s physical distancing by-law remain in effect. We must all continue to follow guidelines from Public Health officials.
The town’s Environmental Sustainability Plan (ESP) provides a framework for our environmental sustainability efforts. The State of the Environment Report (SOER) is a companion program to the ESP, which tracks selected indicators that provide a snapshot of how we are doing on environmental sustainability — a key factor in being a livable town. Browse the four main categories below for in depth information on the indicators we're tracking, or check out our 2017 highlights report (pdf).
