Meeting Canada’s Climate Mitigation Commitments Under the Paris Agreement

December, 2019

Summary

Achieving Canada’s climate mitigation commitments requires the implementation of stringent policies to reduce emissions. This project, conducted for Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission, identified viable policy options for achieving our 2030 target and compared their economic costs.

Highlights:

  • Canada has viable options for achieving its Paris Agreement commitments, including carbon pricing and economy-wide regulations.
  • Carbon pricing is likely to impose lower economic costs than a regulatory approach.
  • Smart policy design can improve economic outcomes, regardless of which policy approach is chosen.
