Climate change is increasing risks to the health of Canadians, but not all populations and communities will be affected by climate change equally. Existing health inequities are exacerbated by climate change impacts. What’s more, adaptations may inadvertently perpetuate health inequities in the absence of effective planning.

This webinar, presented in partnership with Health Canada, explores the opportunities for public health staff to assess and report on the health equity impacts of a changing climate. Participants will also receive practical guidance on how to centre equity in climate adaptation and community resilience policies and programs. Here, climate resilience refers to the ability of communities who are most impacted to adapt and thrive in the face of climate change.
