“We are standing at the threshold of an incredible opportunity to build a strong and clean economy, one that will protect our environment and create opportunities for middle class families today and in the generations to come.”
Minister of Environment and Climate Change
A sustainable, clean growth economy is necessary for our collective health and prosperity – both for today’s families, and for future generations.
That’s why Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government have announced a pan-Canadian approach for pricing carbon pollution. Starting in 2018, provinces and territories will have carbon pricing in place. They will either have a direct price on carbon pollution starting at $10 per tonne, and rising by $10 each year to $50 per tonne in 2022; or, they will have cap-and-trade, with emission cuts in line with both Canada’s target and to the reductions expected in places with a direct price.
It’s a vital step to grow our economy and protect our environment, and will:
- reduce the pollution that threatens our clean air and oceans, and the health of Canadians
- give Canada an edge in building a clean-growth economy
- make Canadian businesses more innovative and competitive
- develop new and exciting job opportunities for middle class Canadians
