Our Goals

The City of Whitehorse's Sustainability Plan is embodied through 12 goals that describe what the community wants to achieve in the long term. It includes specific strategies that support ambitious but achievable targets for 2020, 2030, and 2050. Read more below, download the full Sustainability Plan (PDF), the summary infographic, and the Ideas for Action.

Read the 2018 Monitoring Report.

Sustainability Planning is an opportunity to:

• Identify community and environmental values
• Engage the community in a conversation about sustainability
• Harmonize and integrate discrete City and community projects and initiatives
• Define a path for the future

We aim to capture both the practical knowledge and visionary ideas of employees and residents.
