ProgramClimate Change Impacts and Adaptation Canada in a Changing Climate
Released2022 02 09
Climate change is already affecting the health of Canadians and, without taking concerted action, will continue to result in injury, illness, and death - with greater warming comes greater health risks. Many of these health impacts can be prevented if Canada rapidly and substantially scales up efforts now to adapt to growing threats to health. With increased awareness of the issue and collaboration among partners, health decision makers and communities should seize this window of opportunity to adopt strong adaptation measures and make health systems and facilities environmentally sustainable and resilient to climate change. Otherwise, climate change will continue to stress health systems, through longer-term impacts and by increasing disasters and emergencies that threaten to overwhelm their ability to protect Canadians and their communities.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report provides an assessment of the latest scientific evidence to inform Canadians about how climate change affects their health. The report details the effects of climate change on health and health systems, the populations most at risk, how health care authorities are adapting to climate change, and effective measures to protect health. Led by Health Canada, this report was released in February 2022.
