As part of the Public Outreach Grant SSHRC interns had the opportunity to work with policy partners on profiling some of their current projects. Over the next few weeks CC-RAI will be highlighting that work as part of series of climate change related case studies. The case studies were developed by all of the SSHRC interns in partnership with Knowledge Mobilization and their respective hosts, including the City of Toronto’s Environment Office, Region of Peel, York Region, Durham Region, ACER and the TRCA.
SSHRC intern and Schulich MBA candidate Sarah Applebaum continues our case study series with a look at Toronto Public Health’s Hot Weather Response Plan. The initiative that aims to safeguard populations affected by extreme heat now and into the future – a future in which Toronto is expected to experience an increasing number of extreme heat events.
