Canada’s action on climate change

Federal actions for a clean growth economy

Delivering on the Pan-Canadian Framework on clean growth and climate change

Pricing carbon pollution

Canada is now a world leader in the fight against climate change. We are taking action to reduce carbon pollution, spark innovation and create jobs.

Buildings

Making Canada’s building sector more energy efficient is a cost-effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save households and businesses money.

Clean transportation

With smart and strategic investments in transportation, we will not only grow a cleaner economy and create good jobs, we will improve our quality of life.

Clean electricity

Building a smart, integrated clean electricity system will deliver reliable and affordable power, where it is needed.

Industry

Canada’s industries are the backbone of our economy, but are also a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. The right investments today can make dramatic changes to reduce emissions and increase sustainability.

Innovation

Innovation is the path to inclusive and clean growth, creating jobs and improving the lives of all Canadians.

Forestry, agriculture and waste

Canada’s forests, wetlands, and croplands can absorb and store atmospheric carbon. Repurposing wastes as fuel, where possible, can also reduce emissions.

Adaptation

Taking action to adapt to climate change will help protect the health, well-being, and prosperity of Canadians, and help manage risks to communities, businesses, and ecosystems.

Parks and protected areas

Canadians have been inspired for generations by the wonder and mystery of their natural environment. By protecting our lands and oceans we help fight climate change.

International collaboration

Climate change is a global phenomenon. To solve it, Canada is committed to international collaboration.

Next steps

To ensure the success of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change we must carefully oversee its implementation, take stock of progress achieved and report transparently to Canadians.

Youth engagement

National Youth Summit on Climate Change

Engaging youth in climate change solutions is a key element in leading Canada towards addressing climate change.
