About the project
2020 and 2023
Due to changes in the climate, B.C. is experiencing an increase in annual summer temperatures and extremely hot days. Episodes of very hot weather are dangerous for the health and wellbeing of the community. As the health risks from extreme heat are expected to continue rising, it is critical that partners work together across sectors to prepare for hot weather and increase the resilience of our Interior communities. The purpose of the toolkit is to provide community partners practical information and resources that will assist them in developing and implementing systems and strategies to respond to extreme heat, specifically in rural communities.
