Canada Invests in Climate Change Adaptation in Northern Ontario


News Release

Canadians’ quality of life — and our future growth — are deeply tied to the environment. That is why Canada continues to tackle climate change and invest in adaptation measures that will prepare our communities and industries for a greener future.

Paul Lefebvre, Parliamentary Secretary to the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, today announced an investment of more than $680,000 for the Mining Innovation Rehabilitation and Applied Research Corporation (MIRARCO) for two projects that will help Ontario adapt to climate change.

Funded through Natural Resources Canada’s Climate Change Adaptation Program, the projects will help MIRARCO provide local communities with the tools and knowledge needed to better understand and adapt to the impacts of a changing climate.

The two projects are:

  • Assessing Vulnerability to Climate Change in a Northwestern Ontario Forest Region.
  • Ontario Regional Adaptation Collaborative.
