Long description

The map of Canada displays the 2015 greenhouse gas emissions from 563 facilities across Canada (excluding pipeline transportation systems). Facilities are represented as dots that are colour-coded according to six classes of emissions ranging from below 50 to over 2000 kilotonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.

How this indicator was calculated

Source: Environment and Climate Change Canada (2017) Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Program - Overview of Reported 2015 Emissions.

The data for this indicator are collected under the federal Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Program. All facilities that emit 50 kilotonnes or more of CO2 eq of GHGs per year are required to submit their emissions to the GHG Reporting Program.Footnote1

Unlike Canada's National Inventory Report which compiles GHG emissions data at a national level, and is developed from national and provincial statistics, the federal GHG Reporting Program applies only to industrial and other types of facilities emitting the largest amounts of GHGs in Canada.
