Welcome to the Climate Atlas

The Climate Atlas of Canada combines climate science, mapping and storytelling to bring the global issue of climate change closer to home for Canadians. It is designed to inspire local, regional, and national action that will let us move from risk to resilience.

Climate Atlas  Version 2 

The Climate Atlas of Canada was launched in April 2018, and quickly became a go-to resource for Canadians seeking information about climate change and its national, regional, and local impacts. On July 10, 2019, we released a major update to the atlas, which improves and expands the tools we offer. Read all about the changes here.

Updated, latest-generation climate projection data

All-new “delta” maps (maps that show future change directly)

It's Not Climate Change

It's Everything Change

Earth is now warmer than it has been for over 10,000 years.

Human activity is causing greenhouse gases to accumulate in the atmosphere, and the resulting "greenhouse effect" is trapping more and more heat in the air and oceans. Temperatures are rising, and weather extremes risk becoming the “new normal.”

The climate threat is real, but so are exciting possibilities to find new and creative approaches to living together with health and prosperity within the limits of the natural world.

Climate Change


Four out of five people in Canada live in urban areas, which means the vast majority of Canadians face the growing risks that climate change is bringing to our cities and towns.

In this series of city reports, we offer a summary of projected climate changes for Canada’s major cities, an overview of some important national, regional and local impacts, and ideas and approaches that can be used today to take meaningful climate action across the country.

Cities are a powerful source of resilience and resourcefulness when it comes to taking action on climate change. Learn more about what climate change means where you live.


Heat Waves and Health

Many Canadians welcome the arrival of hot summer days as respite from our long, cold winters.

But too much heat can be dangerous.

There’s no doubt that with climate change we’re going to see more heat waves. Even temperate coastal cities such as Vancouver are preparing for extreme heat impacts.

This report takes a look at what extreme heat means for the health of Canadians.

Planning for Climate Change

Planners, landscape architects, and other allied professionals play a pivotal role in preparing communities and environments for the lived realities of climate change.

Their forward-thinking approach, commitment to sustainability, and widespread influence put them in an ideal position to address climate risk and build climate resilience.

Explore how the planning professions are taking action on climate change and check out a brand-new guidebook that helps explain how to best make use of the Climate Atlas to understand what climate change means for communities across the country.
