REPORT | A citizen’s guide to the Clean Fuel Standard
Canada will become the first jurisdiction in the world with a Clean Fuel Standard that addresses GHG emissions from all facets of society when it comes into force in 2022. But will it actually help Canada reach its goal of a 30 per cent reduction in emissions by 2030? With the federal government poised to publish additional regulations in the Canada Gazette, possibly later this month, the Canada West Foundation has released A Citizen’s Guide to the Clean Fuel Standard, exploring the issues and questions Canadians have around how the policy works and whether it will be effective and efficient in driving down emissions.

The conversation in Canada needs to explore options that include re-engaging with China.
