  • A Primer for Understanding Concepts, Principles and Language Use Across Disciplines (Opens in a new Window)

    This primer helps engineers and climate specialists collaborate more effectively in carrying out climate change vulnerability and risk assessments. It does this by explaining important differences in how practitioners from these two respective disciplines understand particular concepts, principles, and vocabulary.

    Design Value Explorer (Opens in a new Window)

    PCIC’s Design Value Explorer (DVE) enables users to access historical climatic design variables across Canada, in either map or table form, examine projected future change in design variables, and download maps and tables. Climatic design values are used by engineers to determine some elements of the environment that buildings and other infrastructure may be exposed to. This information was produced by PCIC, in collaboration with Environment and Climate Change Canada and the National Research Council, to support updates to the National Building Code of Canada (2015, Table C-2) and the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code (CHBDC/ CSA S6 2014, Annex A3.1).
