It’s that time of year again - the application process for next years’ Sector Committees is officially underway! Every fall, ClimateActionWR recruits subject matter experts and passionate community members to join one of our three sector committees:
- Transportation Sector Committee
- Workplaces/ICI Sector Committee
- Homes Sector Committee
Each committee relates to one of the three largest emitting sectors within Waterloo Region. Sector committees take a ‘birds-eye’ view of their sector, being aware of all initiatives related to climate change mitigation within the boundaries of Waterloo Region, to identify and accelerate progress toward achieving our community’s GHG reduction target. By acting as connectors and catalysts, the sector committees support the achievement of the region’s current target of a 6% GHG reduction, as well as the long-term Climate Action target of an 80% GHG reduction by 2050.
Sector committee applicants must agree to a one-year commitment to their committee, which includes one monthly meeting (1.25 hours) and approximately 5 hours of additional work monthly (total of ~6.25 hours monthly).

Application deadline: November 8th, 2019.
