Raising the bar

Understand the climate crisis

We are already seeing the impacts of the climate crisis across the globe with more severe and more frequent wildfires, floods and droughts in many parts of the world. It affects our economy, our infrastructure, our health and overall well-being too. Together, we can do our part in the global struggle by taking action to build a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable Canada—and minimize the cost of the impacts of climate change.
