One Canopy strategy

One Canopy is a strategy that supports our Strategic Plan and Official Plan through actions aiming to increase tree planting efforts across the community using a mix of public and private land to plant at least 3.6 million trees, covering an area of approximately 1,492 hectares, to achieve 40 per cent tree canopy cover by 2070.

One Canopy Tree Planting Strategy

How the strategy works

The strategy will be implemented in 2023 starting with the development of a five-year implementation plan including prioritized recommendations and future milestones to help us monitor our progress.

Every five years, as we implement the actions, we will evaluate our progress and update the implementation as needed to successfully progress towards our canopy cover goal.
