2019 – Environment and Climate Change Canada
The current National Assessment, Canada in a Changing Climate: Advancing our Knowledge for Action, was launched in 2017. Canada’s Changing Climate Report (CCCR), led by Environment and Climate Change Canada, is the first major report of the current National Assessment. It focuses on answering the questions: how has Canada’s climate changed to date, why, and what changes are projected for the future? Federal government scientists from the departments of Environment and Climate Change Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and Natural Resources Canada, with contributions from university experts, authored the report, drawing primarily on published peer-reviewed literature. This report provides a climate science foundation for the forthcoming National Assessment reports addressing the impacts of climate change in Canada and how we are adapting to reduce risk.
