Who We Are

The Canadian Institute for Climate Choices brings together experts from diverse disciplines to undertake rigorous research, conduct insightful analysis, and engage a range of stakeholders and rightsholders to bring clarity to the climate challenges and transformative policy choices ahead for Canada.

We are publicly funded, non-partisan, and independently governed.

The Canadian Institute for Climate Choices is a member of the International Climate Councils Network (ICCN), an organization that facilitates collaboration and mutual support between Climate Councils from around the world.

Justice and Equity Statement


The Canadian Institute for Climate Choices was established following a competitive request for proposals led by Environment and Climate Change Canada. That process resulted in a mandate to create a pan-Canadian expert collaboration that would “provide independent and expert-driven analysis to help Canada move toward clean growth in all sectors and regions of the country.” While our work is supported through a five-year contribution agreement with Environment and Climate Change Canada, the Institute is a wholly independent organization and retains full control over its research, findings, and policy recommendations.
