Mitigating and adapting to climate change, one initiative at a time

We can help you with your climate change mitigation and adaptation initiatives. Whether to create a community project, develop tools, raise awareness or access training, we’re here to help.

We also work to ensure that issues affecting First Nations are better reflected in climate change policies. And we help communities access funding and solutions so that they can fully participate in the fight against climate change.
