Pan-Territorial Adaptation Strategy


Climate change is a reality in our world. We need to look ahead, to be thoughtful, comprehensive and action-oriented when addressing the issues and making plans to adapt to a changing environment. We believe that future success in this area depends on collaboration, support and integration of our efforts with respect to the urgent concerns and interests of Northerners.

We have committed to working closely with our local, territorial, national, Aboriginal and international partners to share climate change adaptation knowledge and practices in order to develop collaborative activities.

In order to serve all Northerners and ensure their long-term well-being, the governments of Nunavut, the Northwest Territories and Yukon are committed to leading adaptation planning and action efforts in Canada’s North.
