Background

Climate change is one of the greatest long-term challenges facing the world today. The science is clear and unambiguous: climate change is happening. Climate change and other associated environmental effects are impacting human and ecosystem health, as well as sectors with obvious climate sensitivities such as forestry, agriculture, fisheries, hydroelectricity, transportation, tourism, insurance, and trade. Geographic location, socioeconomic circumstance, and reliance on country foods and the health of lands and waters, converge with climate change to create unique pressures for Indigenous, northern, remote and coastal communities in Canada.

CLIMAtlantic Inc. is a new non-profit organization that is part of a national network of climate services centres (see the Canadian Centre for Climate Services). CLIMAtlantic will work with regional and local actors to ensure that we create a strong network where collaboration is supported, data and tools are easily accessible, and services will be provided by local and regional partners as much as possible.
