Climate Ready, Ontario's Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan, outlines the problems, goals, and key strategies for the province's approach to climate change and the problems it poses. The Plan includes five goals:
1. Avoid loss and unsustainable investment, and take advantage of economic opportunities. 2. Take reasonable and practical measures to increase climate resilience of ecosystems. 3. Create and share risk-management tools to support adaptation efforts across the province. 4. Achieve a better understanding of future climate change impacts across the province. 5. Seek opportunities to collaborate with others.
One main area of focus for the first goal is energy infrastructure. The infrastructure policy includes the development of clean energy sources that diversify the province's energy supply.
