Welcome to the City of Toronto's Climate Change Adaptation Reference Collection
This Reference Collection was developed in 2008. The titles of the documents are still valid although not all the electronic links have been maintained.
On this site, you'll find links to studies, reports and tools related to climate change adaptation.
This material was compiled, in cooperation with the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR), in the course of the City’s research on climate change adaptation.
By subject area:
The materials are from a variety of sources, all readily available to the public.
By making this collection of links available online, it is our hope that this material may be more easily accessed and be of benefit to municipalities across Canada working on climate change adaptation.
The City of Toronto and ICLR do not endorse the reference materials in the collection. There has been no financial compensation to authors of materials included in the collection, nor has the City of Toronto or ICLR received compensation from the authors.
We welcome your feedback and recommendations for additional resources by e-mail at: email@example.com.

The development of Toronto's climate change adaptation strategy is a key component of our Climate Change, Clean Air and Sustainable Energy Action Plan, which was unanimously passed by Council in July, 2007. Ahead of the Storm, Toronto's framework for the development of an adaptation strategy was completed in April 2008 and unanimously approved by City Council in July, 2008.
