Key questions for discussion
Your ideas and input are sought around our approach to Canada’s non-tax measures in the context of phasing out inefficient fossil fuel subsidies. Specifically, we are seeking your feedback on:
- Is the definition of “fossil fuel subsidy” and its associated criteria clear and practical? If not, what are your suggestions for improving them?
- Is the criteria proposed to assess “inefficiency” clear and practical? If not, what are your suggestions for improving them?
- Are there any other considerations that should be included in our approach?
