Government of Canada supports climate action by Halton Multicultural Council
“By taking climate action today, we are creating a greener, more prosperous future for our children and grandchildren. We encourage young Canadians to participate in conversations on climate change, to learn how to make a difference, and to be part of the solution. Halton Multicultural Council’s project is an excellent example of the dedication and leadership that youth are demonstrating across the country to push Canada towards a low carbon future.”
– The Honourable Anita Anand, Minister of Public Services and Procurement
“This kind of grassroots project serves both to educate youth and to help them gain the skills and the leadership tools, and nurture the hope they need to take action and make a difference. The Halton Environmental Network served as our partners on this project, and not only did they bring their expertise on climate change, they also brought their passion and commitment to creating real change. The youth projects were creative and informed, and the greenhouse gas emissions savings were estimated at 20 tonnes over the collective projects.
– Kim Jenkinson, Executive Director for the Halton Multicultural Council
Halton Multicultural Council (HMC)’s mission is to help newcomers settle and integrate into a community that is welcoming and inclusive.
