The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Health, and the Honourable Carolyn Bennett, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions and Associate Minister Health, announced the release of Health of Canadians in a Changing Climate: Advancing our Knowledge for Action which will help inform policy development focused on protecting Canadians from the effects of climate change.
The report provides a comprehensive assessment of the latest research on how climate-related hazards, including extreme heat events, wildfires, floods, and ice storms are affecting our health and wellbeing. This reports also documents the increasing risks from infectious diseases and from climate impacts on food and water safety and security. Additionally, the report includes new information on Indigenous health impacts, mental health, health equity, and health system resilience, which has not been the focus of past assessment reports.
In developing the report, Health Canada engaged experts from academic, government, and non–governmental organizations across Canada, who assessed and synthesized knowledge from peer–reviewed literature, government reports, and Indigenous-led studies.
