On May 16, about 30 SCAN! members rallied at Queen’s Park in support of a bill drafted by Jennifer Penney and MPP Peter Tabuns. The Ontario Change Adaptation and Resilience Act, 2024 has 50 adaptation recommendations. In addition to the Strategic Action Plan that lays out the adaptation actions the government needs to take, the bill mandates a Climate Adaptation Fund to invest in climate resilience. It also provides for an Adaptation and Resilience Resource Centre to make available the necessary research and knowledge to government, decision makers and communities.
