Policy Core Principles

government office
  • Canadian environmental policy should focus on providing clean air, land and water and sensible adaptation measures to prepare for inevitable climate variability.

  • Canadian energy policy should seek to ensure the secure and reliable availability of competitively priced energy services; predictable investment, regulatory and market access rules for energy investors; and broad support for Canada’s economic, social and environmental policy objectives.

  • Climate policy has widespread and diverse impacts on Canada’s regions and people. Climate policy development should take place in an environment in which different interests and regions are represented and respected, and all constructive views are welcome.
