Workshop attendees will have a chance to:

  • Hear the results of public engagement and the risk assessment outcomes so far;
  • Review, discuss and comment on the draft adaptation actions; and,  
  • Contribute your ideas for additional actions.

Please RSVP by March 4th!

Thank youto the many individuals who came out and participated in our risk assessment workshop in December! We have spent some time reviewing the results, verifying ratings to ensure a high level of agreement between different groups, and summarizing the results in the attached report. We will be presenting these findings at our workshop on March 12 and using them as a lens to review and prioritize actions in the coming phase. In the meantime, you are invited to read the report and send any comments to  

There will be additional public events coming up in the spring for those who would like to be involved but can’t make the actions workshop on March 12. Sign up for newsletters to learn more! For more information and background on the Saanich Climate Plan, please visit
