Government of Canada Adaptation Action Plan
The Government of Canada Adaptation Action Plan (GOCAAP) is the policy and program framework that shows how the Government of Canada contributes to achieving the goals, objectives, and targets laid out in the National Adaptation Strategy (NAS). While federal action is one key part for implementing the NAS, collaboration with provinces, territories, Indigenous Peoples, the private sector and all Canadians is critical to our collective success.
The Action Plan outlines the federal role in meeting adaptation goals, objectives and targets. It also identifies the tools the Government of Canada uses to make Canada more resilient to climate impacts including:
- supporting informed planning and decision-making;
- generating scientifically sound, foundational climate change data;
- convening partners and stakeholders;
- setting long-term policy direction, along with regulatory measures (e.g., codes and standards for resilient infrastructure) and targeted investments;
- working with provinces and territories to develop bilateral action plans for adaptation and co-development of the Indigenous Climate Leadership Agenda with Indigenous partners—collaborations that will maximize the impact of efforts made at different levels.
