The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM), University of British Columbia and the University of Waterloo are seeking respondents for their online Local Adaptation in Canada Survey which closes on May 7th.

Take the online Local Adaptation in Canada Survey and share some insights about how your municipality is approaching climate change adaptation. Whether your municipality is just starting to think about climate change adaptation or is well on its way in implementing adaptation plans, projects or solutions, we want to hear from you.

The survey results will be used to create resources and training materials that you can use to help your community adapt to climate impacts, such as flooding or extreme weather. Your feedback will also help to inform the design and delivery of local climate adaptation funding and programming in Canada, which could benefit your municipality in the future. Survey findings will be available for free online, published through peer-reviewed venues, and presented at relevant conferences and workshops.

The survey should be completed by one employee at your municipality who works on climate change or environmental issues. It takes 10-25 minutes to complete. All responses are confidential and the data will be aggregated, so nothing you report will be directly attributable to your municipality.

FCM, the University of British Columbia, and the University of Waterloo have jointly launched this survey to learn more about adaptation planning in communities across Canada. For questions about the survey or more information about how results will be used, please contact
