Indigenous communities across Canada are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change from events such as wildfires, heat waves, floods, and shortened winter road seasons in the North. Morrison Hershfield and Shared Value Solutions have partnered to present an overview of the solutions that Indigenous Communities can develop to become more resilient to the impacts of climate change and extreme weather.

This webinar explores the funding application process, eligible grants for Indigenous communities (including a program currently open in Alberta) and an overview of the climate-risk assessment and climate adaptation planning processes.
