Working together to fight Climate Change
The Government of Canada will provide national leadership and join with the provinces and territories to take action on climate change, put a price on carbon, and reduce carbon pollution.
Working with Scientists
The scientific evidence is clear: climate change is one of the greatest threats of our time. From increased incidences of droughts, to coastal flooding, to the expanding melt of sea ice in our Arctic, the widespread impacts of climate change compel Canada to take strong action now.
Working with Provinces and Territories
Together with the Provinces and Territories, we will attend the Paris climate conference, and within 90 days will formally meet to establish a pan-Canadian framework for combatting climate change.
Working with the World
The Government of Canada is committed to the adoption of an effective climate change agreement at COP 21 that promotes increased ambition over time. We will work with international partners to lead the transformation towards a low-carbon, climate resilient global economy.
