Municipal Action Plan
The Township of Georgian Bay joined the Partners for Climate Protection program in May 2018 and was the first municipality in the District Municipality of Muskoka to achieve Milestone 1 of the program in that same year. Since then, the Township has achieved Milestones 2 and 3 and is currently working with SSS to implement their Municipal Climate Plan, progressing through Milestones 4 and 5. The Township is also a major champion of the regional-scope Climate Change Action Plan and has made great strides in actioning those items with additional partners and agencies.
