Climate resilience

Work to update the Climate Action Plan will begin in late 2024. This update will include the development of a Climate Resilience Strategy. Resilience planning helps us prepare and respond to the impacts of climate change.

Climate impacts for Winnipeg include:

  • More extreme heat days
  • Fewer but more intense summer precipitation events
  • Increased risk of drought in summer
  • More moderate winters
  • Increased freeze-thaw events
  • More precipitation in winter, spring, and fall

There are also online resources to help residents prepare for emergencies, including those created by climate change. This will help us all prepare for our changing climate.
