Climate Change and Human Migration Series

As the extreme effects of climate change intensify, human migration is emerging as a response to new life-threatening risks, which are consequences of this global crisis.

This series, featuring Dr. Robert McLeman of Wilfred Laurier University, showcases leading academic research, case studies, and panel discussions aimed at raising awareness of how migration induced by climate change will impact Canada. The series also explores how Canadians can reflect on the knowledge from Indigenous communities to inform government decisions in response to climate change.

Participants will acquire the foundational knowledge needed to understand the consequences of climate change migration and gain insights on how Canada can prepare and respond to it.
