Ontario Climate Change Lab: Solutions for Ontario’s Climate Challenge @ Evergreen Brickworks
Jul 6 @ 8:30 am – 5:30 pm
The Clean Economy Alliance has contributed to the shaping of Ontario’s cap-and-trade program with our carbon pricing principles. And based on last week’s meeting, we are refining our cap-and-trade design recommendations, which will be circulated soon for your feedback. When complete, the recommendations will be submitted to the Province as a practical path forward.  
Now it’s time for us to help inform the rest of Ontario’s climate change strategy.
As an Alliance, we have voiced our support for complementary actions to reduce emissions in sectors across Ontario’s economy, including energy efficiency, renewable energy, climate friendly land-use planning, fairness for workers and low-income communities, and low-carbon transportation. It’s time for us to discuss and recommend specific actions that could be implemented and make these available to the Province and the public to inform the development of Ontario’s Climate Change Strategy.
We will be joined by the Hon. Glen Murray, Ontario Minister of the Environment and Climate Change and the Hon. John Godfrey, Special Advisor for Climate Change and Chair of the Ontario government’s Climate Action Group, as well as many other inspiring and knowledgeable speakers.
The all-day strategy lab will bring together businesses, industry associations, labour unions, agricultural groups, health charities, environmental organizations, First Nations, academics, and government officials to discuss and provide input into Ontario’s Climate Change Strategy.
Participants will unite around a common vision for Ontario to tackle climate change in a way that leads to improved personal and public health, new jobs, and new markets and opportunities for Ontario-based businesses in the global clean economy.
