Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) uses satellite remote sensing to monitor lake-wide water quality indicators across Canadian inland waters. Remote sensing provides a cost-effective solution to obtain frequent lake-wide water quality observations in support of lake science and inland water quality management on an on-going basis. The datasets presented in the EOLakeWatch interactive web-tool provide long-term satellite-derived monitoring of water quality indicators, contributing to programs such as the Lake Winnipeg Basin Initiative and Great Lakes Nutrient Initiative.
Clouds is designed to be clear and concise, while offering the same degree of detail as other weather apps. Clouds features high-quality, trusted data sources, including current conditions and forecasts directly from Environment and Climate Change Canada. Clouds is also designed to be fast, giving you all the information you need right away using your current GPS location.
This application allows you to view current and historical maps of agro-climatic conditions in Canada.
The AAFC Agroclimate data can be acquired from:
- Percent of Average
- Departure from Average
- Crop (Corn) Heat Units
- Growing Degree Days
The Canadian major and minor crop field trial regions were developed following extensive stakeholder consultation and have been harmonized between the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) and the Environmental Protection Agency of the USA.
ContaMire presents all the data from the Contaminated Sites Inventory of the Ministère de l'Environnement et de la lutte contre les changements climatiques (MELCC) of Quebec and the Federal Contaminated Sites Inventory of the Government of Canada. In addition to the use of national colours in the legend, the specificities of each are identified by the abbreviation (QC) to designate the MELCC directory and (CA) to designate the federal contaminated sites directory.
A suite of extreme weather indices has been created to help with agricultural decision-making. The indices are short-term weekly forecasts (for up to a month ahead) that predict risks to agricultural production from extreme weather factors related to temperature, precipitation, heat, and wind.

The api provide real-time water level and flow (discharge) data collected at over 1900 hydrometric stations across Canada and historical water level and flow (discharge) data collected at over 7700 hydrometric stations across Canada.
Visualize drought across Canada using a number of analysis tools including animations, side by side map comparisons, and change maps.
The Cereal Aphid Manager is an easy-to-use mobile app that helps farmers and crop advisors control aphid populations in wheat, barley, oat or rye. The app predicts what the aphid population will be in seven days and the best time to apply insecticide.
