Canada’s National Adaptation Strategy: Building Resilient Communities and a Strong Economy

November 2022 – 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
  • Infrastructure
  • 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 is now open to the provinces, territories, and National Indigenous Organizations for a final 90 days of engagement on the Strategy’s common goals and specific measurable targets and objectives. The Strategy is a result of extensive engagement since 2021 and presents a shared vision for climate resilience in the country and a framework to measure progress nationally.
