Learn what we're doing to in Milton to reduce our impact on the environment, address climate change impacts, and become more sustainable.

We're planting over 1,300 trees

The Town applies a green lens to projects and initiatives using specific environmental, sustainable and energy conservation strategies. This year, we're planting 731 trees in streetscapes and parks. For reforestation efforts, an additional 600 potted trees are being planted in partnership with Conservation Halton, Sustainable Milton and Anne J. MacArthur Public School. A plan is in place to plant these trees in our community this spring when it is safe to do so, pending COVID-19 restrictions.

Milton's Green Innovation Plan

The key goals of the plan are:

  • Update the Corporation Conservation and Demand Management Plan, reflecting an up-to-date baseline for legacy buildings, planning for new buildings, expanding transportation
  • Create a Community Plan including regional, commercial, residential and institutional energy analysis
  • Engage a wide stakeholder group to develop and advance the Community Plan, with effective engagement led through a steering committee, advisory group and public engagement
  • Explore the potential for "Deep Green" approaches to new developments, such as the Milton Education Village
  • Maintain sustainable governance and effective implementation of the plan through the steering committee and advisory group
