The Metrolinx Five Year Strategy

The Metrolinx Five Year Strategy (2015-2020) included the provision for a Corporate Climate Adaptation Plan to be established by 2018. In view of this goal, Metrolinx created a Senior Advisor position in resiliency and adaptation, and engaged a project team, consisting of specialists from AECOM, Risk Sciences International and Toronto Region Conservation Authority, to conduct a pilot study on climate change vulnerabilities.


Évaluation de la vulnérabilité aux changements climatiques du réseau de drainage unitaire de Montréal

Le Service de l’eau de la Ville de Montréal a signé une entente avec Ingénieurs Canada afin d’utiliser le Protocole du comité sur la vulnérabilité de l’ingénierie des infrastructures publiques (Protocole) pour l’évaluation de la vulnérabilité des infrastructures de drainage unitaire du Service aux changements climatiques. Le Protocole consiste en une méthodologie d’évaluation centrée sur l’utilisation d’une matrice de risques et sur le jugement professionnel.


City of Nelson Stormwater Management System

The City of Nelson recognizes the importance of preparing for the potential impacts of future climate change, specifically relating to the effects of flooding and extreme rainfall events. As a participant in CBT's Communities Adapting to Climate Change Initiative (CACCI), the City identified the possibility of vulnerabilities in their stormwater infrastructure and engaged focus to further assess the system using the Engineers Canada Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) Protocol.


Assessment of Town of Welland’s Stormwater and Wastewater Collection and Treatment System
