About The Report:
The modeling being presented here shows Canada can do the hard work required to achieve our fair share of carbon emissions reductions – 60% reductions by 2030. Not only is this worth doing, Canadians will be better off. Household energy bills would fall; there would be more good, green, stable jobs; communities would be healthier; and there would be a lower risk of extreme weather events fuelled by increasing carbon emissions in the atmosphere. To do our fair share on climate action, Canada needs more stringent policies that will fundamentally shift every emission source away from fossil fuels and towards zero-emitting technologies. At the same time, we need stronger policies so that the zero-emitting technologies that are both available and affordable can be accessed by every Canadian family.
