The Ontario Climate Consortium helps end users figure out the climate questions they need to ask, and connects them with researchers who can deliver the answers. We develop projects in three key areas.

Climate Information

  • Custom Analysis
    Projects leveraging completed analysis or existing data sets.
  • Applied Climate Science
    Primary research into the use of climate information.

Adaptation and Mitigation

  • Planning Support
    Technical support and guidance to facilitate risk-based planning. 
  • Research Support
    Research projects designed to inform responses and create tools to support the adaptation process.

Research Mobilization

  • The OCC Symposium
    A flagship event showcasing the work of top climate researchers and thought leaders.
  • Communications & Engagement
    Collaborative efforts with researchers and end users to maximize the utility and visibility of OCC research projects.
