BC, QC institutions conduct research to combat climate change


Several institutions in British Columbia and Quebec have recently received funding to embark on research projects related to climate change. In British Columbia, researchers from Kwantlen Polytechnic University, the University of British Columbia, and the University of Victoria are working with industry partners to combat the impact of climate change on BC’s agriculture and aquaculture. These genomics projects received a combined $1.84M in funding from the provincial government and partners. Université du Québec à Montréal Professor Philippe Gachon will be leading a $3.6M research project with the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Polytechnique Montréal, and several industry and government partners. The partnership is focused on better predicting the impact of extreme weather on hydroelectric and mining infrastructure.
