If you’re interested, please read the guidelines for the CRCC program – they are very specific! – before registering via the link below.

Idea Exchange & Discussion: NRCan’s Climate Change Adaptation Program

Join CLIMAtlantic on August 10 at 3pm (ADT) to explore ideas, potential projects and collaborators for funding proposals for Climate Change Adaptation Program from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan)! 

Since there are separate processes and timelines for Indigenous and non-Indigenous applicants, this online workshop will provide tailored facilitated networking and collaboration opportunities for each.

Please note: we expect only those interested in submitting a proposal or in collaborating to participate, and that those with project ideas come prepared to share them.

The deadline to submit proposals to NRCan’s Climate Change Adaptation Program is September 22. Projects must be in the following categories: adaptation skills, economics, emerging issues, and/or natural resource sectors.

Atlantic Canada Flood Mapping Conference

Natural Resources Canada partnered with CLIMAtlantic to host the first Atlantic Canada Flood Mapping Conference

Halifax, Nova Scotia (Virtual & in-person)

When: October 5 and 6, 2022

The Atlantic Canada Flood Mapping Conference aimed to address some of the key challenges concerning flood hazard mapping methodologies applied in the Atlantic provinces. The event hosted presentations from both flood mapping practitioners and flood map users followed by interactive discussions to facilitate knowledge sharing across academia, government, non-profit organizations, Indigenous communities, and consultants.

The targeted outcome was to bring more clarity for local stakeholders across the flood mapping framework, as well as highlight best practices in the region.
