The presentation  builds on a survey of Canadian federal and provincial statutory climate law updated by CELA law student Sara Desmerais earlier this year.

While widespread agreement exists across the country of the need for climate action, so far not enough attention is paid to protecting vulnerable communities from the impacts of climate change.
