Clean Growth

On July 19 APEC released the report Pursuing Clean Growth in Atlantic Canada: Progress, Challenges and Policy Priorities. This new report assesses Atlantic Canada’s progress towards clean growth, highlights some of the challenges, and identifies key policy priorities.  The full report and summary chapters are available in English and in French.  

APEC’s companion report, Growing Atlantic Canada’s Clean Technology Firms, released in February 2018, focused on how to facilitate the growth of Atlantic Canada’s clean technology firms. The report is available in English and in French.  The report release was followed by a paid webinar held later in the month; the recording is available for a fee. 

APEC has also been active examining the potential implications of carbon pricing including an interview with Chris Ragan, Chair, Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission in 2017,  a free webinar on the federal carbon pricing backstop in March 2018, and a discussion on carbon pricing in its latest report on clean growth (Chapter 6).
