Canadians want to be ready to tackle the challenges of a changing climate in order to build a better future. This is why the government is investing in adaptation, while creating good jobs and growing the economy.
One of the greatest opportunities for Canada is the shift toward clean growth. To combat climate change, Canada needs new and innovative approaches to electricity generation and distribution. That is why supporting smart grid projects at the community level is a key component of the Government of Canada’s approach to a clean energy future.
Combating climate change requires new and innovative approaches to electricity distribution. Upgrading infrastructure with new technologies will create jobs and lower energy costs while also protecting the environment by lowering carbon emissions.
As the world shifts to a low-carbon future, getting clean Canadian goods to international markets is of vital importance. By promoting innovative forest products from our sustainably managed forests, we are expanding market access and creating jobs and economic opportunities for Canadians.
Investing in the long-term use of wood in Canada’s construction industry will increase the demand for Canadian wood products, create good, middle-class jobs for Canadians and help the Government of Canada achieve its climate change goals.
