Climate Change Adaptation Planning with the Georgina Island First Nation
With funding from Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, OCCIAR is partnering with the Georgina Island First Nation to develop a climate change adaptation plan for their community. Combining aspects of Traditional Ecological and Community Knowledge, and a vulnerability assessment approach, this project will help the Georgina Island First Nation deal with the current and future impacts of climate change in their community.

Climate Change Adaptation Planning Within the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation Reserve -Project Brochure
The brochure outlines some of the activities undertaken for the project.
This information package was given to community members at the first Climate Change Adaptation Program community meeting. The package provided community members with information about the project team, the project, climate change, climate change adaptation, climate change and the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation, Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), methods to collect TEK, and the project Advisory Committee.
This questionnaire, created by Dr. David Pearson (Laurentian University, Sudbury, ON) for the collection of Traditional Ecological Knowledge for Adaptation Planning in the Far North, was modified by the Georgina Island First Nation and the Turtle Island Conservation to collect TEK related to changed weather and climate, as well as impacts to various facets of Traditional Ways of Life on Georgina Island.
Daily climate data from the Shanty Bay weather station obtained from Environment Canada (Environment Canada, 2015). Temperature and precipitation data, for the years 1973 to 2014, are displayed annually and seasonally.
