Host Country Outreach


ImageCanada is proud and honoured to welcome the world to a landmark event in the global effort to address climate change as, together with the City of Montréal, it hosts the United Nations Climate Change Conference from November 28 to December 9, 2005.

Montreal 2005 is expected to bring as many as 10,000 people to the city, including delegates, official observers from government, industry, business, the scientific community, and other groups interested in action on climate change. The parallel events are expected to attract 2,000 to 3,000 people alone, and up to 1,000 journalists from around the world will cover the conference - in all, one of the largest meetings ever held in Canada, and the largest non-sporting event in Montréal since EXPO 67.

The secretariat of the Climate Change Convention and the Government of Canada are coordinating their web sites for Montreal 2005.  Together, this effort will provide a comprehensive collection of information and web services for conference participants and the public. 

The Montreal 2005 web site, managed by the Government of Canada, provides general information about the United Nations Climate Change Conference and details about parallel events and activities called 'A World of Solutions'.  Here is an outline of the content that you will find on this web site.

Canada and Montreal 2005

A series of dynamic parallel events will ensure Montréal 2005 reaches well beyond the negotiations taking place inside the city's Palais des Congrès. These events will give delegates and the public alike the opportunity to view a wide range of perspectives and solutions to the global challenge of climate change, and allow people from all sectors and backgrounds to exchange information and learn from the experience of others.

Greening the Conference

The UN Climate Change Conference is expecting approximately 10,000 delegates to be in attendance.  In order to offset the emissions generated from long distance and local travel, accommodations and the venue, the Government of Canada will be retiring approximately 10,000 tonnes of certified emission reduction credits.
