Clean, Affordable Power

We will work to make clean, affordable power available in every Canadian community.

Canada is home to an abundant supply of clean and renewable sources of power – including hydro, wind, and solar – but in some places we lack the infrastructure to get this clean power to people’s homes and businesses in a reliable, affordable way. In addition to the impact this can have on the environment, this limits our ability to share energy resources in a way that benefits everyone.

To help bring clean and affordable power to more communities, we will move forward with new clean electricity generation and transmission systems, in partnership with the provinces, territories and others.

We will move forward with a new $5-billion Clean Power Fund. This fund will help support the electrification of Canadian industries, including our resource and manufacturing sectors, and make Canada home to the cleanest mills, mines, and factories in the world.

The Clean Power Fund will also help support the transition of northern, remote, and Indigenous communities off reliance on diesel-fueled power and onto clean, renewable, reliable energy. This will be sourced through the Canada Infrastructure Bank’s existing resources.
