The Institute worked with ESSA Technologies Ltd. (ESSA), Industrial Economics Inc. and other experts to quantify the physical impacts of climate change and monetize these impacts at a national level, for two future eras and two global greenhouse gas (GHG) concentration scenarios for the following themes:
- Homes, buildings, and real estate
- Transportation infrastructure
- Canada’s North
- Electricity and energy
- Human health
- Business interruption
This technical report describes the approaches ESSA took to examine the economic consequences of climate change on human health and labour supply, as well as the results of applying these approaches.
