What We Do

The Canada Climate Law Initiative (CCLI) provides businesses and regulators with climate governance guidance so they can make informed decisions towards a net-zero economy. Powered by the nation’s top expertise, we engage with boards of directors and trustees to ensure businesses understand their legal duties with respect to climate change. Our legal research allows us to stay one step ahead in a rapidly transforming policy landscape.

Present to directors and trustees of businesses

Through our Climate Governance Expert program we offer free, confidential, and private presentations to directors and trustees to help Canadian businesses to consider, manage, and disclose climate risks. Our goal is for you to govern with confidence.
