Canada’s plan to make communities more resilient to climate change will be released on Tuesday. The plan is expected to be similar to the draft published last fall, which included targets to strengthen resistance to wildfires, extreme heat, and major storms. The plan includes measures such as protecting people from extreme heat, updating flood maps for high-risk areas, and educating the public about specific risks in their communities. The federal government has consulted with provinces and territories to gain their support for the plan, as it requires collaboration at all levels of government.
Canada is currently facing its worst wildfire season on record, with the most area burned due to fire in a single year in less than six months. Ottawa committed $1.6 billion in new spending to the adaptation plan last fall and is expected to announce additional funding.
