The Canadian Centre for Climate Services: Connecting Canadians with climate information 

Our services aim to address common barriers to using climate information in decisions, like lack of access to reliable information and data in usable formats, or the knowledge of how to find it and use it. Our presentation will seek to highlight the kinds of tools, guidance and information that may be required in order to consider climate change in the development or use of standards. Key offerings that will be showcased include the CCCS website and the Climate Services Support Desk, which connects clients directly with climate experts for guidance or specific datasets. The presentation will also highlight the new Canadian Climate Data Portal, a user-friendly online climate data source created in partnership with regional climate service providers.
