The city of Toronto has launched its first ”resilience strategy,” presenting a vision to help residents deal with shocks, stresses and the unexpected.
Toronto’s Chief Resilience Officer Elliott Cappell says the city’s becoming ”hotter, wetter, wilder” and that it needs a plan.

The strategy includes 10 goals to help the city survive, adapt and thrive in the face of challenges, particularly climate change and growing inequities.
Toronto’s the second Canadian city after Montreal to release such a strategy.
Three years ago, the city joined a network hosted by 100 cities that have adopted resilience strategies.
The network is a movement started by The Rockefeller Foundation.
The last two years, Toronto’s resilience office gathered input from over 8,000 individuals and 75 groups and reviewed over 40 existing plans before coming up with the city’s strategy.
