Permafrost and the active layer (the soil layer above the permafrost that freezes and thaws annually) are directly affected by climate. It is anticipated that rising temperatures in the Arctic will lead to permafrost warming/melt and thickening of the active layer. Probable impacts of permafrost degradation on the tundra ecosystem include ground instability and changes to local hydrological patterns and surface vegetation. In 2009, a Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring (CALM) Grid was installed in Auyuittuq National Park near Owl River as part of an international program to monitor the effects of climate change on the active layer and near-surface permafrost.
Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a set of three maps. The main map shows the location and extent of census divisions and subdivisions as of 1961. The second map shows the same information for the most populous regions of Ontario and Quebec at a larger scale of 1:5 000 000. These two maps are accompanied by a textual index that references the coding system used to identify the census divisions and subdivisions to corresponding place names.
Plant Watch is a national program which has been incorporated into ecological integrity monitoring in PEI National Park. The program adds to understanding of how common plant phenology is responding to climate change. PEI National Park monitors the first bloom Julian dates of four species within the forest ecosystem: Red Maple (Acer rubrum), Eastern Larch (Larix laricina), Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis), and Starflower (Trientalis borealis).
Canada and Manitoba agree that immediate action and collaboration was and continues to be needed among governments to expand virtual care services to support improved access to publicly insured health care services for Canadians and to work together to further accelerate the use of virtual care services as a critical channel for delivering care during COVID-19
