Collaboratively Building a Climate-Resilient Economy and Financial System in BC

Collaboratively Building a Climate-Resilient Financial System in BC was a first of its kind workshop of financial sector organizations, financial service providers, risk consultancy providers, climate action professionals and financial regulators. The workshop was hosted collaboratively by the Vancouver Economic Commission, the Pembina Institute, the BC Financial Services Authority as an invitation-only portion of the Understanding Risk BC (URBC) Symposium. The Canada Climate Law Initiative, at the University of British Columbia, generously provided facilitation support and climate risk and governance expertise.

The organizers are providing this report back to all stakeholders with an overview of action areas that can be tackled in the coming months and years, particularly in view of aligning with the BC Government’s Climate Preparedness and Adaptation Strategy.
