Hundreds of Canadian municipalities have declared a climate emergency, and cities across Canada are looking for new and effective ways to reduce the carbon footprint of their communities.

Effective municipal responses need to address transportation as a leading source of emissions, and sustainable transportation strategies should enable the rapid adoption of zero-emission vehicles (ZEV).

But how can municipalities leverage their authority and community connections to accelerate ZEV uptake? And which programs and policies should they prioritize?

Based on extensive modelling of municipal ZEV strategies coast-to-coast, Low Carbon Cities Canada (LC3) and the Green Municipal Fund (GMF) co-created this guide with Dunsky Energy + Climate Advisors to identify and prioritize the highest-impact municipal actions for electrifying how people, goods and services move around.

View the resource to learn about the six priority actions, how to go about them, why to choose them, and to find out who is already taking action in Canada.
