Canadian Climate Institute (CCI)

The Canadian Climate Institute (CCI), launched in early 2020, brings together experts from diverse disciplines to undertake rigorous research, conduct insightful analysis, and engage a range of stakeholders and rights-holders to bring clarity to the climate challenges and transformative policy choices ahead for Canada. This includes work intended to help decision-makers and Canadians understand and evaluate the policy choices that could put Canada on a path to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and build a clean, prosperous and resilient future that benefits all Canadians.


While the CCI and the NZAB are independent, the two groups have agreed to coordinate on certain activities, like research and engagement related to Canada’s commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. This coordination recognizes the growing number of actors in the net-zero space and the distinct but complementary mandates of the NZAB and the CCI.

Featured collaborations:

  • The NZAB and CCI co-hosted an event on October 25, 2021, entitled, “Canada’s Net Zero Economy: Securing Prosperity in a Net Zero World”, on the risks and opportunities that lie ahead.
  • The NZAB and the CCI are jointly representing Canada in the International Climate Councils Network (ICCN) and will be working with other lead countries to help guide the development of the ICCN for 2021/2022.
