Supporting Climate Adaptation
Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation Partnership
The Intact Centre is our signature partnership with the University of Waterloo, focused on climate adaptation. Through applied research it provides practical guidance for communities, governments, homeowners and businesses, to identify, and reduce the impacts of extreme weather and climate change.
Nature Conservancy of Canada Partnership
In 2022 we announced a new five-year partnership with the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) to double down on helping with climate adaptation. NCC is Canada’s leader in accelerating the conservation and stewardship of nature to deliver long-lasting results of global significance.
Through this partnership, we have committed $8 million to:
Conserve and restore more of Canada's threatened wetlands, which are critically important carbon sinks and provide communities with natural defense in the face of climate change.
Undertake a process to develop a made-in-Canada protocol for wetland-based carbon offsets, which will be made available for use by international standards bodies.
Translate the protocol into a sustainable finance tool for use in Canada.
Adaptation Grant Partners
Through our granting programs, Intact is helping communities adapt to the effects of climate change and protect people from floods, wildfires and extreme heat. Our partners are exploring real, concrete solutions to make our communities, our people and our economy more resilient.
