The Climate Atlas of Canada was created by the Prairie Climate Centre at the University of Winnipeg. This innovative tool allows users to visualize and interact with up to date climate data and investigate human stories about climate change and action. The Atlas explains what climate change is, how it affects Canada and what these changes mean in our communities. Documentary videos, collaboratively developed with local and Indigenous knowledge holders as well as other experts, help make local sense of the global issue of climate change.
