Annex: Clean transportation

Transportation is a significant component of the Canadian economy and society – moving goods and people, as well as connecting communities. In 2019, the transportation and warehouse industry accounted for 4.5% of GDP ($89 billion) and had 972,600 employees. Transportation also accounts for about 25% of Canada’s total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and accelerated efforts are needed to reduce those emissions while continuing to enable the many essential services that an effective transportation system provides. Moving forward, key opportunities include supporting the development and deployment of low and zero-emissions technologies; and ensuring that Canadian companies can capitalize on opportunities to manufacture zero-emissions parts and vehicles in Canada, while also expanding the market for clean fuels.
