Towards a net-zero carbon future with C2R2

In the face of a climate emergency and pandemic recovery, leadership in sustainability is more important than ever. CICan and Canadian Colleges for a Resilient Recovery (C2R2), a coalition of 15 CICan members leading skills development for the green economy, share the commitment to environmental sustainability and resilient recovery!

  • Together we can better position all colleges and institutes as key players in resilient economic recovery that will benefit all Canadians.

Don’t forget: Our paper, Leading the Way to a Net-Zero Carbon Future” presents the role of colleges and institutes in four pillars: green skills for a net-zero future, applied research and living labs, Indigenous and nature-based solutions, and leveraging campuses.

With their extensive footprint, expertise in equipping learners with job-ready skills, and an applied research innovation pipeline to small and medium-sized businesses, colleges and institutes are ideally positioned to support Canada’s transition to a net-zero future!
