Intact doubles down on its Municipal Climate Resiliency Grants program

Date June 10, 2024

Climate change is a defining issue of the century, which is why building climate resilient communities is critically important.

In 2022, Intact invested $1 million in 10 communities across Canada through our Municipal Climate Resiliency Grants to help protect people from the effects of climate change and build more resilient communities.

More needs to be done so for our 2024 program, we are doubling down and providing $2 million over two years to support municipalities, registered charities, and indigenous communities address extreme weather events including flooding and wildfire.

Our program funds initiatives that implement proven adaptation solutions, including those identified by the Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at the University of Waterloo. Projects that protect the community at large and target areas vulnerable to the impacts of climate change or that protect homeowners are our priority.

Municipalities are at the frontlines of protecting people from the impacts of flood and wildfire. We believe equipping them with solutions to address their risk - while also mobilizing residents in the process - is essential to building climate resilient communities.

Intact exists to help people, businesses and society prosper in good times and be resilient in bad times. And building resilient communities – including climate resilient communities – is at the root of our purpose and central to our strategy. We look forward to partnering with municipalities on their innovative projects.
