Climate change

Global warming is a serious problem, and we're working to decrease carbon emissions in Canada.

On the national level, we are developing a clean, renewable energy plan for Canada through the Trottier Energy Futures Project. On the provincial level, we're encouraging friendly competition to see which province can adopt the best climate policies through our Race to the Top campaign. For individuals, we offer resources on how to go carbon neutral at home and at work.

Together, we can turn back climate change.

Get the government to end tax breaks to dirty fuels!

The federal government continues to give billions of dollars in tax breaks to the companies producing oil and gas in Canada. Analysis shows a total of $1.4 billion per year in federal subsidies, $840 million of which are special tax breaks, with a disproportionate share going to dirty fuels such as the Alberta Tar Sands.
