Canada Coal Transition Initiative
We’re here to help workers and communities in areas that rely on coal to adjust, by supporting skills development and economic diversification activities during the transition to a greener economy.
Transition to a low-carbon economy
The Government of Canada is taking action to support areas that still rely on coal.
- The Canada Coal Transition Initiative (CCTI) is an investment of $35 million over five years. It supports skills development and helps communities adapt to a low-carbon economy. The fund was launched on April 1, 2018 and ends on March 31, 2023.
- The Canada Coal Transition Initiative – Infrastructure Fund was launched on August 20, 2020. This $150 million fund aims to help communities move away from coal by investing in infrastructure. The initiative is set to end on March 31, 2025.
In Atlantic Canada, ACOA is delivering $55 million under the CCTI initiatives.
We’re working with partners to make this transition easier. Our investments will help communities diversify economies, create jobs and prepare for the future.
