ClimateXchange: Pricing Pollution in Canada Webinar
July 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Carbon pollution pricing has long been a critical part of the plan to fight climate change in Canada. The provinces of British Columbia and Quebec were two early leaders in this policy. In 2008, British Columbia introduced the first broad-carbon tax in North America; the tax supports the growth of B.C.’s low carbon economy and includes programs to keep the tax affordable while providing opportunities to make lower carbon choices.
Quebec became the first jurisdiction to price carbon in North America in 2006, and has been linked to California’s robust cap-and-invest system since 2013.
