Who is the focus of this consultation

We invite all Canadians with an interest in Canada’s climate change commitments and policies to comment. In particular, we encourage comments from:

  • environmental non-government organizations
  • industry associations
  • Indigenous peoples
  • academic communities

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?

To help you prepare your input see the discussion document.
