The Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR):

The Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR) is a world-class centre for multi-disciplinary disaster prevention research and communications. ICLR was established by Canada’s property and casualty (p&c) insurance industry as an independent, not-for-profit research institute affiliated with Western University. Institute staff and research associates are international leaders in wind and seismic engineering, atmospheric science, risk perception, hydrology, economics, geography, health sciences, public policy and a number of other disciplines.

The 20 case studies presented in ICLR's report offer examples of actions taken by governments across Canada that have enhanced their adaptation to extreme heat due to climate change.
