July 2023 – Environment and Climate Change Canada
The National Adaptation Strategy outlines a shared path to a more climate resilient Canada. It establishes a shared vision of what Canadians want their future to look like. It sets out a common direction for preparing for climate change events across five key systems that are at the heart of Canadian lives and communities:
- Disaster resilience
- Health and wellbeing
- Nature and biodiversity
- Economy and workers
The first-of-its-kind Government of Canada Adaptation Action Plan outlines clear federal adaptation objectives and targets in order to focus policy and spending on measurable results. In this plan, the federal government is delivering nearly 70 actions to address both immediate and future climate risks to Canada.
The Strategy was released in November 2022 for a period of final comment, with provinces, territories, and national Indigenous organizations reviewing it and providing feedback. This opportunity for a final comment period strengthened relationships, confirmed support for the Strategy’s overall vision, and will improve shared implementation.
