Pricing carbon pollution for clean growth

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. Pricing carbon pollution is broadly recognized as one of the most effective, transparent, and efficient policy approaches to reduce emissions. The vast majority of Canadians already live in a province with carbon pricing.

The Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change outlined a benchmark for pricing carbon pollution by 2018. The goal of this benchmark is to ensure that carbon pricing applies to a broad set of emission sources throughout Canada with increasing stringency over time to reduce GHG emissions at lowest cost to business and consumers and to support innovation and clean growth.
