Cutting Taxes for Clean Tech Businesses

September 24, 2019

The world’s leading scientists have been clear: we have to act now to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. And companies around the world are taking action.

The clean tech market is exploding. It’s the next great economic frontier. It’s a massive opportunity for our country — and we want to make sure Canada is leading the global clean tech race.

We’re going to make Canada the best place to start and grow a business that produces zero emissions tech. We want to encourage and support companies that are already innovating. Companies that are building battery technology for electric cars, or working on the next generation of solar panels, are choosing Canada. We want to encourage more to do the same.

That’s why we’re going to slash corporate taxes in HALF for companies that develop technologies or manufacture products that have zero emissions.  

From electric cars to renewable power, we’ve already made huge leaps in what’s possible when it comes to protecting our air, our water, and our future — but there’s more to do!

Conservatives want to bury their heads in the sand, denying the science and hoping that other countries will step up. They have no plan to reduce emissions, no plan for jobs, no plan for the future. All they’ve done is drive innovators away.

Our kids and grandkids are counting on us to get this right. That’s why the Liberal team is looking forward — to the next generation of clean tech.
