Warming due to anthropogenic climate change is amplified at northern latitudes with profound implications for Northern communities, ecosystems, and socio-economic development. This points to an acute need to improve resilience to climate change in the Canadian North[1], particularly in light of factors such as remoteness and the dependence on cold-climate-based infrastructure and cold-climate cultural traditions. There is an increased demand at national and provincial level for putting in place structures for weather, water, ice, and climate (WWIC) services that aims at supporting stakeholders in building their resilience and adaptive capacity to address climate change risks.
