Climate Data and Information
In this section you will find different tools and data sources to explore, depending on your level of interest, knowledge, and experience.
The tools and data sources combine climate science, mapping and storytelling to bring the global issue of climate change closer to home for Canadians. They are designed to assist local, regional, and national action that will help us move from risk to resilience. It provides access to several data collections ranging from observations, climate projections and reanalyses.
Climate Atlas of Canada
The Climate Atlas of Canada combines climate science, mapping, and storytelling to bring the global issue of climate change closer to home for Canadians. It is designed to inspire local, regional, and national action that will let us move from risk to resilience.
This interactive tool is for citizens, researchers, businesses, and community and political leaders to learn about climate change in Canada.
ClimateData.ca provides high-resolution climate data to help decision makers build a more resilient Canada. Start exploring case studies and downloading location-based climate data by variable or sector.
This platform is supported by the Canadian Centre for Climate Services (CCCS) of Environment and Climate Change Canada as part of its efforts to provide Canadians with easy access to climate related data and to help increase their resilience to climate change.
Power Analytics and Visualization for Climate Science (PAVICS)
PAVICS is a virtual laboratory facilitating the analysis of climate data. It provides access to several data collections ranging from observations, climate projections and reanalyses. It also provides a Python programming environment to analyze this data without the need to download it. This working environment is constantly updated with the most efficient libraries for climate data analysis, in addition to ensuring quality control on the provided data and associated metadata.
