A recent study commissioned by the city predicts that Toronto will face dramatically warmer temperatures and an increase in heavy rainfall over the next thirty years. What are the implications? How will this new, more tropical climate affect our infrastructure? What about our homes? Please join us at this important meeting to learn more about what the study predicts, what the city is -- or should be -- doing and what we can do to prepare.

For some useful background, here are two key documents:
