Climate Change

Reports on climate change in Simcoe Muskoka

Climate change represents an opportunity for collaboration to support healthy, resilient, and thriving communities. Our communities are already doing a lot to promote climate change action in Simcoe Muskoka. Here is a snapshot of some of the work being done in our area:

City of Barrie Climate Change Adaptation Strategy (City of Barrie, 2016)

The City of Barrie created a climate change adaptation strategy which aims to increase resiliency and adaptive capacity to changing climate. The adaptation strategy (currently still in draft format) identifies climate projections for the city, physical, social, ecological, and economic impacts of climate change, and outlines the process the city took to identify priority actions they will be implementing to increase community resiliency to climate change.

Planning for Climate Change in Muskoka (Muskoka Watershed Council, 2016)

The Planning for Climate Change in Muskoka report identifies projected impacts due to climate change for the District of Muskoka. It provides a snapshot of what the climate of Muskoka may look like mid-century, and examines impacts to aquatic environments (lakes, rivers, streams, and wetlands), forests, and lifestyle (recreation, infrastructure, and health).

Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority

Conservation authorities in Ontario are responsible for flood risk mitigation and watershed monitoring. This section of the NVCA website discusses the impact of climate change on the local watershed.

Sustainable Severn Sound

A collaboration of seven municipalities in the Severn Sound area, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, Severn Sound Environmental Association, and North Simcoe Community Futures Development Corporation.
