Summary

CAP is working with the City to incorporate climate change into program planning and implementation to reduce the vulnerability of the city and its inhabitants to the impacts of climate change. [...] Decision-makers in both the public and private realms will need to assess the risks associated with climate change and take appropriate action to better adapt to the changes ahead. [...] The negative impacts of these changes reverberate through the physical landscape, and have the potential to overwhelm the capacities of our social, environmental, and economic systems. [...] You can see from the map below that the trend of rapid warming in the Arctic and sub- Arctic regions of Canada is expected to continue. [...] Despite the 100-year storm drainage capacity in the northern part of the city, the storm on August 19, 2005 in the Yonge and Steeles area flooded numerous roadways.
