Virtual activity.

The Ontario Professional Planners Institute (OPPI), in collaboration with Climate Risk Institute and Dillon Consulting, has developed a suite of climate change adaptation training modules. The development of these training modules was made possible by funding from Natural Resources Canada. 

The online training program brings together current knowledge informed by the deep experience of practitioners in the field, and supported by an Advisory Committee of academic, municipal, private sector, and Indigenous members.

The program is primarily focused on adaptation action but also explores intersections between adaptation and mitigation. Climate change mitigation is about making sure the climate crisis doesn't get worse. This could include making buildings more energy efficient or providing people with more transportation options that don’t rely on combustion. Climate adaptation explores ways of addressing the existing or anticipated effects of climate change. For example, ensuring vulnerable community members are safe during an extreme heat event or protecting existing homes and buildings in areas of flood risk. The program explores how you, as Planners, can ensure communities are prepared for and resilient to the risks created by a rapidly changing climate. 

 

Module #1 reviews the fundamentals of climate change science and data, impacts in Ontario, risk assessment and adaptation planning. Module #2 covers climate and planning policy, reviewing requirements and opportunities around climate change adaptation at the regional and municipal level. Lastly, Module #3 provides tools and strategies to support communication and collaboration around climate change impacts and adaptation planning. We encourage participants to register for all three modules. 

 

Participants will work together on activities throughout, applying new concepts and checking their understanding throughout the training.  

 

Training sessions begin June 13th, 2022.

Finding the Missing Middle, Downtown Walking Tour

Start/End Date: Wednesday, August 3, 2022 6:00 PM - Wednesday, August 3, 2022 7:30 PM
District: Toronto District

 

Walk Start Location: Paul Garfinkel Park (1071 Queen St W) - Queen Street side. Organizer will have a sign.


 Nearest Public Transit: 501 Queen streetcar

 Walk End Location: College and Dovercourt

 

If you've been looking for the missing middle in Toronto, look no further.

 

Join members of the City of Toronto Planning team who are working to make our neighbourhoods more welcoming places for all by adding garden suites, laneway suites, multiplexes, low-rise apartment buildings, and local commercial uses through the Expanding Housing Options in Neighbourhoods initiative.

 

Although we call these forms of housing the "missing middle", they can be found across the city today, many hiding in plain sight. Can you spot them?

 

The staff team will identify where they are located along the route, talk about why we don't see more of this type of housing – and what the city is doing to address it.
