Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change to promote climate action, Canadian clean technology, and trade, in San Francisco
Ottawa, Ontario – January 4, 2018 – The Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, will visit San Francisco—on January 4 and 5, 2018—where she will participate in activities and meetings focusing on climate action and promoting trade and investment in clean technology. This visit will include a meeting with the Office of the Governor of California, Jerry Brown.
California is an important partner for Canada when it comes to climate action. Canada’s two most populous provinces, Quebec and Ontario, together with California, currently form the world’s second-largest carbon market. Canada and California are cooperating on regulatory policies and standards to reduce emissions and on clean-technology investment to drive clean innovation, create jobs, and grow the economy.
“California is the sixth-largest economy in the world, and I am proud that we are working together on climate action and clean growth. I am happy to be going to San Francisco to advance Canada’s collaboration with California. We both understand that the environment and the economy go hand in hand.”
– Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change
