Some great questions here for our rural candidates in the upcoming municipal election!
 Global climate change is a reality, and at the same time energy prices continue to rise. As these trends will fundamentally change our communities, how can municipalities work to increase resilience – to ensure that communities can withstand potential shocks and changes? What types of responses address both climate change and rising energy prices? This manual explores these questions as they relate to rural Ontario municipalities.

The intent of this manual is to provide ideas and potential resilience strategies that are within the reach of rural Ontario municipalities, especially in those areas over which they have direct influence: local land use, infrastructure, transportation, buildings, energy efficiency, and economic development.

A project from the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development by Wayne Caldwell et al, University of Guelph. You can find the guide HERE>
