Canada’s Changing Climate Report is about how and why Canada’s climate has changed and what changes are projected for the future. Led by Environment and Climate Change Canada, it is the first report to be released as part of Canada in a Changing Climate: Advancing our Knowledge for Action. It documents changes across Canada in temperature, precipitation, snow, ice, permafrost, freshwater availability, and in Canada’s three oceans.

Canada’s Changing Climate Report was produced through a collaboration between scientists from Environment and Climate Change Canada, Fisheries and Ocean Canada, Natural Resources Canada, and university experts. It provides the climate-science foundation for the forthcoming reports addressing the impacts of climate change on our communities, environment, and economy, and how we are adapting.

The digital interactive version of the report is available at www.ChangingClimate.ca/CCCR2019. The report is also available at: adaptation.nrcan.gc.ca
