Canada in a Changing Climate

Status: Ongoing – 2021

A five-year national assessment of how Canada's climate is changing, the impacts of these changes and how we are adapting to reduce risk.

The process to develop Canada in a Changing Climate is an ongoing collaboration among subject-matter experts. This team will deliver a series of authoritative science and information reports to advance our knowledge.

Some of the key areas that will be explored include:

Next steps

The first report, Canada's Changing Climate, will be finalized by the end of 2018. The National Issues, Regional Perspectives and Health of Canadians reports are in development now and will be released as soon as they are available in 2020–2021. The final, enhanced synthesis report will be released in 2021 and will draw from, and add value to, the findings of all other reports produced during the process.
