The Village of Lumby achieved all 5 milestones of the Partners for Climate Protection program’s Milestone Framework. PCP is a network of Canadian municipal governments that have committed to reducing GHG emissions and protecting our climate. From creating an inventory to setting and reaching emissions reduction target, each milestone moves us closer to achieving our climate goals. We’re working to reduce local greenhouse gas emissions with PCP support: PCP is a partnership between the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability. PCP receives financial support from the Government of Canada and ICLEI Canada.

The Lumby-Weyerhaeuser Salmon Trails were officially opened on June 10th 2006, with the participation of the Okanagan First Nations, represented by the Okanagan Indian Band. Pamphlets and Trail Passports can be picked up at many businesses downtown, at the Chamber of Commerce/Tourist Information Centre and the Village Office. This project adds to the community’s capacity and responded to the need for a new direction in the local economy.
