AbstractFrom 2002 to 2006, the Earth Sciences Sector of Natural Resources Canada implemented a program entitled "Reducing Canada's Vulnerability to Climate Change". Within this program, one project, "Municipal Case Studies: the planning process and climate change" aimed to generate scientific knowledge on a sample of the major climate change impacts facing Canadian communities. One of the desired outcomes of this project was that professional planners would use geoscientific information in planning for climate change. The case studies were selected to address issues such as water resource depletion, coastal erosion due to higher sea levels, and permafrost melting. In order to make the results of the case studies accessible to the planning community, City Spaces Consulting Ltd., a planning consulting firm based in Victoria, British Columbia, was contracted to produce summary reports of the five case studies and draw out the planning implications of the results.
This Open File presents these summary reports in both official languages. We would like to acknowledge the contributions of the numerous scientific collaborators and community participants in these studies that are listed in the individual reports. Natural Resources Canada scientists led two of the case studies (Calgary: Steve Grasby; Delta: Phil Hill). The other three were led by the University of Victoria (Graham Island: Ian Walker), Université Laval (Salluit: Michel Allard) and Environment Canada (New Brunswick coast: Réal Daigle) with NRCan scientist participation.
