Background of the organization
Green Communities Canada (GCC) has been leading a community-based climate action movement since 1995, working together with local members from across the country to advance transformative, equitable, and lasting change. As a membership-based organization, GCC’s mission is to connect community-based climate action groups through a national network to share resources, co-create innovative programming, and elevate collective impact.
GCC is looking to increase the number of local organizations they support in rural and suburban areas to increase the uptake of residential deep energy retrofits. Funding from the Foundation will be used to increase staff capacity and to develop tools, such as communications materials, case studies and energy savings and benefits calculators, for local organizations to use to accelerate progress in their communities. GCC will also use funding to provide upskilling workshops and certify new energy auditors to help address the current worker shortage.
