Ontario Regional Adaptation Collaborative (2007-2011)

The Regional Adaptation Collaboratives (RACs) initiative is a cost-shared, federal program designed to help Canadians reduce the risks and maximize the opportunities posed by climate change.

The Ontario Regional Adaptation Collaborative is one of six regional adaptation collaborative projects planned across Canada under Natural Resources Canada’s RAC funding program. The goal of the program is to integrate climate change adaptation into a variety of existing planning and decision-making processes. For the Ontario RAC (2007-2011) program, Natural Resources Canada partnered with the Ontario Ministry of Environment, and worked directly with other partners including government, non-government organizations, and academia to develop knowledge and tools meant to help local practitioners and decision-makers reduce the risks and maximize opportunities arising from a changing climate. The Ontario RAC (2007-2011) worked to address targeted climate change vulnerabilities through several projects to advance decision-making in the areas of extreme weather, risk management, water management, and community development planning.
