In June and July 2022, the Federal Government opened its National Adaptation Strategy Consultation, asking Canadians about what they think needs to be addressed when it comes to adapting to climate change.
The Group of 78, Climate Legacy’s charitable partner and Senior’s for Climate Action Now! submitted reports of where the consultation was lacking. Seniors, for example, were not represented in the government’s initial Advisory Panel.
There is a general lack of urgency in the draft strategy, that implies climate change is far off in the future, when its consequences are present today.
Climate Legacy is proud to have sign on to G78’s brief and is happy to provide a platform to SCAN!’s necessary submission. Please read these reports to understand what still needs to be done to improve the National Adaptation Strategy!
