Many northern communities are feeling the pressures of climate change. For example, permafrost is thawing, making roads less reliable and more costly to build and maintain. Ice and water conditions are changing, causing risks to marine traffic.
The Northern Transportation Adaptation Initiative (NTAI) Program provides funding to help meet some of the challenges of climate change in Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and communities in Nunavik and Nunatsiavut.
The program will include a grants and contribution component to support projects that:
- develop new knowledge about how climate change is affecting transportation systems in the north
- develop tools and practices to respond to these effects
- provide education and training for northerners to help manage transportation systems affected by climate change
