Extreme Heat 



Extreme Heat Risk Mapping

The average temperature in the Township is predicted to increase over the next 30 years. We have already seen the impacts of extreme heat on our community and expect more in the future. Some of the impacts of serious weather and temperature changes include wildfires, flooding, and landslides.

Get Prepared: Heat, Smoke and Wildfire Resources



As part of this project, we are engaging with agricultural producers to better understand the impacts of extreme heat on crops and livestock.

Anyone who is involved in the agriculture industry is encouraged to take the online survey to share their experiences with extreme heat. The survey will be open until Friday, June 9, 2023.

Online Survey


Rising temperatures impact the health and safety of everyone in our community.  It’s especially concerning for the farms that many people in the Township depend on for their livelihoods.

Based on concerns from agricultural producers in the region, the Township is undertaking an extreme heat risk assessment and mapping project.  This risk assessment will help us understand where the community is most vulnerable to heat. It will provide valuable information to prepare for future emergencies and help farmers protect their crops and livestock. Your input through the survey will help us to better understand how extreme heat impacts farming and what resources are needed to help reduce those impacts. 

If you prefer, a paper copy of the survey can be printed off here or picked up from the Township Municipal Hall. 

Funding for this Project


To support this project, Council sought out funding through a $30,000 grant from the Union of BC Municipalities.
