With support from the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), CSA Group has developed standards and training under the Northern Infrastructure Standardization Initiative (NISI) to design, plan, build, and maintain northern infrastructure in a changing climate. These standards will help facilitate the adaptation and mitigation of climate change to northern built infrastructure while meeting the needs of Indigenous and northern communities in ensuring sustainable and quality infrastructure.

With support from SCC and Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada and permission from Ecology North, we’re pleased to make available climate change adaptation guides created based on CSA Group’s NISI standards. The northern adaptation guides are easy to read and are beautifully illustrated by Alison McCreesh.

All NISI standards, training, and adaptation guides are available free of charge.
