Equipping Canadians to Adapt to Climate Change

A changing climate presents both risks and opportunities for Canada’s regions and resource sectors. To reduce these risks and take advantage of opportunities, we must adapt.

Adaptation involves making adjustments in our decisions, activities and thinking because of observed or expected changes in climate. Adaptation will help to maintain and enhance Canada’s economic competitiveness and the well-being of individuals and communities. To enable adaptation, decision-makers in the public and private sectors require access to relevant tools and knowledge.

Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) Adaptation Platform (2011-2016) brings together Canada’s institutional, financial and knowledge resources to enable development and widespread use of adaptation information and tools. The platform fosters collaboration across Canada’s provincial and territorial governments, Federal government departments, natural resource industries and professional organizations, to collaborate on shared adaptation priorities. 

Results of this work (including the latest assessment report, etc.) are available. Previous products are also available as Assessment Reports, Case StudiesProject ReportsTools and Guides.
