SECRET
The impacts of climate change are already evident across Canada
Temperatures have increased and precipitation patterns have changed,leading to a wide range of impacts, including:
 ±
Reduced Arctic ice cover 
 ±
Changes in timing and amount of surface water available
 ±
Increased evaporation leading to lower levels in the Great Lakes
 ±
Increased depth and extent of permafrost thaw
 ±
Shorter season and decreased quality of Northern ice roads
 ±
Increased loss of forests due to pests and wildfires
 ±
More frequent droughts and flooding
In addition to gradual shifts in temperature and precipitation, changes inextreme weather events, sea level, storm surges, and sea ice havebeen observed and are projected to continue
Knowledge of current and projected impacts of, and vulnerability to, achanging climate is essential for future planning and decision making
