  • Environment and Climate Change Canada has been developing and testing its new weather app since fall 2017. Over 50,000 Canadians downloaded the beta version of the app and their valuable feedback was integrated into the design. Only two weeks after its official launch, WeatherCAN had been downloaded over 280,000 times.
