Reducing plastic pollution is an international imperative that is important to Canadians and people around the world. As part of its climate change commitments, the Government of Canada is collaborating with small businesses to reduce pollution and help create a greener, more sustainable environment for everyone.
Canada is building a clean energy future that creates jobs, reduces costs for families and ensures that we remain a destination of choice for international investment. Central to this goal is the growing global battery market that has the potential to change the way we use and store power, providing a major economic opportunity for Canada while directly supporting efforts to mitigate climate change.
When we invest in Canadian ideas, our economy grows and our communities flourish. That is why the Government of Canada is funding the development of innovative new products and processes in our natural resource sectors.
Canada's forest sector continues to be an important generator of good jobs in communities across the country, including rural, remote and Indigenous communities in Quebec. The Government of Canada is working with Indigenous peoples to ensure that they not only participate in sustainable forestry projects but also benefit from initiatives created by their community, for their community.
Canada’s mining and minerals industry is important to our economy and to communities across the country. Developing Canada’s natural resources in cleaner, more sustainable ways will create good, middle-class jobs, increase competitiveness and reduce pollution as we move toward a clean energy future.
Canada's climate plan is working for our planet, and it is working for Canadians. Zero emission vehicles play a key role in our clean energy future. As families continue to make greener choices, Canada is delivering more options for them to drive where they need to go while reducing pollution and making life more affordable.
Adapting to climate change means reducing its negative effects while also seizing new opportunities. The Government of Canada recognizes the urgent need to protect water resources in Atlantic Canada so that families and communities have a sustainable and prosperous future.
