Barrie municipal conference

Mayor Jeff Lehman and the City of Barrie, in partnership with the Ontario Centre for Climate Impacts and Adaptation Resources, and sponsored by the Insurance Bureau of Canada, have issued Barrie Construction Association members an invitation to a dinner and special one-day conference, Building Municipal Resiliency in Central Ontario, that will focus on the unique issues that face the Central Ontario region. Climate change continues to bring challenges that municipalities need to face head-on and proactively manage.

“We invite all areas of your organization to attend to learn how to make your community ready to take on the unique challenges presented by climate change in Central Ontario,” Lehman wrote. “This conference will be of particular interest to elected officials, senior managers, engineers, planners, emergency management personnel, the insurance industry and all public and private sector organizations engaged in how we respond to climate change.”
