Canada Needs Your Advice – Zero Emissions consultations
The Federal Government has established a very tight timeline for consultations on the Zero Emissions Framework.
“Thanks in part to the tireless advocacy of many climate activists, Canada now has the Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act (formerly Bill C-12). As part of the Act, the Environment Minister is legally obligated to establish a plan to achieve Canada’s 2030 GHG emissions reduction target. This is a moment of opportunity because the Minister must consult us before he establishes the plan. And the Minister has to publish a report on the consultations, which means he has to actually reply to submissions.
The Environment Minister’s public consultations on the plan to achieve Canada’s GHG emissions reduction target opened on or about 14 December 2021 and closes on 21 January 2022.”
