New website to share green policies in Ontario municipalities


The Ontario Green Policy Hub, launched in October, offers a searchable on-line library of sustainability policies in Ontario municipalities. At launch, the website provides details about policies and programs in Toronto, Kitchener, Burlington, East Gwillimbury, York Region, and joint programs. Categories are: Community Design, Transportation, Green Infrastructure, Water Conservation, Energy, Waste Reduction, and Public Buildings. The OGPH was developed by the Municipal Leaders Forum of the Greater Toronto area chapter of the Canada Green Building Council. The Ontario Green Policy Hub is at: https://www.ogph.ca/.
