Established in 2000, the Northern Climate ExChange partners with communities, First Nations and government leaders to discover how climate change will impact the North’s infrastructure and plan future development around those impacts.
We actively work to share our research results with organizations across the North – recognizing their value to the circumpolar world. Governments across Canada’s North have used our research results to guide their planning.
We partner with many different organizations including the Government of Yukon’s Department of Highways and Public Works to mitigate hazards along the Alaska Highway, the Yukon Energy Corporation on hydro-security, and First Nations across the territory in our work to map climate change hazards.
Promoting Awareness of Climate Change
Our researchers work with Yukon Government employees to normalize the notion of our changing climate. This is done through courses, and working with government to integrate climate change plans into development assessment.
