Climate change is affecting Canada’s forests to a greater extent than other parts of the globe. A climate change vulnerability assessment is currently underway in Saskatchewan and Manitoba with the goal of identifying what climate change will look like in the boreal forest and how to reduce its impacts.

In a recent case study, we examined historic and future climate extremes and variability in the Souris River Watershed that are impacting the energy sector. Find out how the energy sector has responded to extreme climate events and what future adaptation actions the they can implement to capitalize on potential opportunities and to reduce risks in a changing climate.

Saskatchewan, despite its long winters (or what feels like winters that won’t end) is the sunniest province in Canada. The ability to measure and quantify that fact is important for industries in which weather plays a factor in planning and revenue. At our Climate Reference Stations, we use a sunshine duration sensor to help document Saskatchewan’s brightest attribute.
