The research aims to explore how climate change and the discourses about adaptation to climate change are altering the spatial development of the tourism industry in coastal destinations in the periphery. Firstly, we will review the consequences of climate change for the coastal environment and tourism. Then, we will present the role of space in the adaption of the tourism industry. The reproduction of the coastal tourism space in the context of adaptation to climate change will be illustrated by two case studies in Eastern Québec in Canada – the communities of Tadoussac on the north shore of the St-Lawrence River and of Notre-Dame-du-Portage on the south shore.
