Welcome to the Indigenous Climate Change Searchable Library

IndigenousCimateHub recognizes that Indigenous peoples are the first land observers and through oral tradition hold valuable land and climate based knowledge systems.
Climate change impacts all Canadians and can be felt from coast-to-coast-to-coast. We have a shared responsibility to protect and preserve this land and foster environmental stewardship practices that benefit all living things.
The choices we make today will effect the future seven generations. It is time for the global community to take on the task of cleaning up our land, air and water so that 100 years from now our grandchildren and great-grandchildren can live in a beautiful world.
587,545 Métis Community
Building on traditional Métis values and Canadian contemporary knowledge systems the Métis have much to contribute to the national discussion on climate change.
634 First Nations
First Nations peoples are Canada’s first climate change adapters. Through oral traditional and cultural connection, First Nations have since time immemorial maintained an intimate knowledge and relationship to the land.
4 Inuit Regions
The Inuit peoples have a wealth of knowledge and have witnessed the impacts of climate change on their lands for thousands of years. We have much to learn from the Inuit and their lands.
Indigenous Climate Network
The members-only Indigenous Climate Network is an interactive platform for members to connect, share ideas and leverage resources. The network is expected to officially launch in the fall. Please visit the website often to learn more about this online community and its official launch date.
The IndigenousClimateHub.ca is a unique online community of Indigenous climate change leaders that have come together to share their stories and climate change adaptation experiences. The website is the result of the recommendations brought forward by Indigenous peoples at the Indigenous Climate Change Adaptation Gathering in 2018.
