Ontario Liberals Introduce Climate Change Strategy

Next steps to keep Ontario a North American leader in the fight against climate change


Ontario Liberals are playing a leading role in the fight against climate change, with a clear vision for a clean and prosperous future.

Through our Climate Change Strategy, we will reduce greenhouse gas emissions while supporting growth, efficiency and productivity. The Ontario Liberal plan includes:

  • Introducing climate legislation that, if passed, would make the cap and trade program law in Ontario.
  • Integrating climate change mitigation and adaptation considerations into government decision-making and infrastructure planning.
  • Introducing changes to government operations, procurement, employee training, building retrofits and in other areas to help government move towards carbon neutrality.
  • Developing a coordinated approach to reduce emissions from new and existing buildings.
  • Promoting the uptake of zero emission and plug-in hybrid vehicles to reduce emissions from transportation.
