Mayor Philip Brown

Mayor, City of Charlottetown

Mayor Philip Brown is determined for Charlottetown to lead by example to inspire cities across Canada to become walkable, pedestrian-focused, and sustainable.
To decrease GHG emissions from the largest source in Charlottetown (transportation), he set two projects into action: The Transit Electrification project, which will transition 2/3 of the municipal transit fleet to fully electric vehicles, and the Active Transportation project, which has expanded multi-use lanes and pathways by over 8km. As a result, these initiatives have seen over 25% of the City’s commuters using active or public transportation. The recently-passed Community Energy Plan invests $6.8 million in energy upgrades to City facilities to lower its energy demand in 2021, and bring down Charlottetown’s environmental impact even further.
