Unmitigated climate change will cost Canada approximately $5 billion per year by 2020, and between $21 billion and $43 billion per year by 2050. Adapting to climate change makes economic sense. It can lower the cost of climate impacts by preventing damage, saving money and lives.

We call on the Government of Canada to live up to its promise of ensuring Canada’s long-term prosperity, recognizing the central role that a stable climate must inevitably play in achieving this goal and, to this end, adopt a National Climate Strategy that describes, in a transparent manner, the specific measures to be taken in order that the government adhere to the CO2 targets adopted by the 40th Parliament of Canada for a 25% reduction below 1990 levels by 2020, and followed by an 80% CO2 reduction below 1990 levels by 2050.
