Canada 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.
