Clean Canada: protecting the environment and growing our economy

Clean Canada offers a snapshot of how we’re coming together to build a cleaner, healthier, more affordable future that we can be proud to have our children inherit. It includes:

  • putting a price on carbon pollution across Canada so it’s no longer free to pollute
  • phasing out traditional coal-fired power plants and investing in renewables
  • expanding public transit across the country
  • investing in energy efficiency to help families and businesses save money
  • investing in made-in-Canada technologies and clean solutions
  • improving building codes and standards so our homes and buildings use less energy
  • finding cleaner alternatives to diesel in remote communities
  • raising standards so our cars run on cleaner fuels and cost less to operate
  • doubling the amount of nature we protect
  • keeping plastic waste out of our environment
$1 = $5: for every $1 invested in energy efficiency programs, Canadians save up to $5
90% Canadian target for clean electricity
