Environment and Natural Resources

Climate change is predicted to affect all Canadians as a result of its impact on their environment, health and economy. As companies and individuals across the country work to consume less energy and minimize their carbon footprint, Canada’s new green technology sector grows year-over-year while developing the next generation of sustainable products and services. MITACS projects teams in this theme are mathematically modelling climate change to further our understanding of its impacts, working with the aerospace industry to design more efficient aircraft and developing new hydrological forecasting systems to maximize hydropower production and minimize flood risk.
