Climate change is expected to result in fluctuations in water quantity, degraded water quality, increased flood and drought risks, as well as a greater burden of climate-related water-borne disease. The impacts of sea-level rise and loss of ice in Canada are likely to be significant. Not all Canadians will experience these impacts equally. First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities, many of which already face water insecurity, are expected to be disproportionately affected, as are rural and remote communities that have only basic water and sewage infrastructure.
The health impacts associated with climate change effects on water quality and quantity are not inevitable. Through effective mitigation and adaptation, they can be reduced. Canadians can better adapt to these anticipated impacts and protect health by assessing local climate risks and vulnerabilities, developing adaptation plans, improving surveillance systems, building climate-resilient water systems, and promoting intersectoral collaboration to protect water resources and address climate-related risks.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This chapter describes the relationship between climate change and the water cycle in Canada and attendant risks to the health of Canadians from impacts on water contamination, safety, and security.
