Climate change is real and it is accelerating. Climate change can also intensify extreme weather events like floods, droughts, and heatwaves. And Canadians across the country are feeling the effects of these changes through the impact it has had on their homes, businesses, and their health. That is why the Government of Canada is providing access to climate data and information that will help protect Canadians from its worst impacts.

Today, Catherine McKenna, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, announced Canada’s newest climate data portal: This website provides engineers, public health professionals, urban planners, mayors, and anyone else doing long-term planning with user-friendly climate change information, data, resources and tools.
