About The Canadian Climate Forum
The Canadian Climate Forum was formerly the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences (CFCAS), established in 2000. Today, The Canadian Climate Forum (the Forum) builds upon over twelve years of CFCAS’s investment in Canadian climate science and research.
Building upon its distinguished past, the Forum is uniquely positioned to convene, mobilize, and disseminate climate science knowledge to guide best practices related to climate mitigation and adaptation strategies, and public policy. The Forum focuses on information mobilization and application, and is not an advocacy body.
The Forum offers an annual symposium, theme-based issues papers and a range of products and services related to climate systems and atmospheric sciences. The Forum collaborates with all sectors including governments, national associations, the scientific community, the not- for-profit sector, media, and the private sector. It also maintains relations and memberships with international bodies committed to climate research and knowledge exchange.
The work of the Forum enhances Canada’s capacity to identify threats and impacts, and foster proactive decision making for the betterment of all Canadians. The Forum’s ultimate goal is a stronger, healthier and more resilient Canadian society in the face of a changing climate.
The Forum is a registered, national charity that is governed by a Board of Directors and managed by an Executive Director and small secretariat based in Ottawa. It is actively seeking funding partners to develop and expand its activities.
