Transport Canada hosts a webinar series entitled Transportation: Adapting to the Changing Climate. The objective is to build knowledge and capacity both within the department and the broader Canadian transportation sector on the impacts of a changing climate and adaptation solutions.

The next webinar, entitled SmartICE Sea Ice Monitoring & Information – Adapting to Climate Change, is scheduled for Tuesday, March 12, 2019 from 2:00pm to 3:00pm EST. The webinar will focus on SmartICE, an award-winning technological innovation for the North, which was first developed in Newfoundland and Labrador through collaboration with northern communities, including Nain and Pond Inlet.  SmartICE is the world’s first climate change adaptation tool to integrate Inuit traditional knowledge of sea ice with advanced data acquisition and remote monitoring technology to provide data-driven insights into sea-ice thickness and local ice conditions in real-time, to support safer travel on ice.
