EG has finalized the draft Environmental Strategy, which, once approved, will guide the municipality’s journey toward building a more diverse, resilient, and sustainable Town for years to come. The new strategy has a more holistic view of the environment and is divided in five thematic areas: Land, Air, Water, Biodiversity, and Outreach.

This strategy is reflective of the current and future needs of EG, residents, businesses, committees, and staff. During 2023, we engaged the community and internal and external stakeholders to gather their thoughts, ideas, and concerns about the environment where they live, work and play. After an extensive research and engagement process, we drafted and reviewed the strategy, and it is ready for the final stage: community validation and approval.
