West Vancouver is a district municipality in the province of British Columbia, Canada.
Tackling climate change requires a range of actions—to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and also to prepare for the impacts that it will bring to the District. Data shows that about 95 per cent of West Vancouver’s GHGs are generated by the community, and 54 per cent of those GHGs come from heating homes. Now, the municipality is asking residents to shift their thinking too, especially around housing, transportation, land use and waste reduction. Another product of climate change is sea-level rise. It is estimated that by 2100, the sea in English Bay could rise by as much as one metre and inundate significant portions of West Vancouver’s waterfront.
