The Greening of Atlantic Canada

October 16, 2008

Although public awareness of climate change has been growing steadily for many years, it is only recently that the resultant shift in public opinion has been reflected in government policy. Policy makers are still feeling their way through this (relatively) new area but provincial governments in Atlantic Canada are embracing many aspects of a climate change agenda. The big challenges for Atlantic Canada lie in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from electrical generation and containing emissions from new sources of industrial activity, particularly those related to energy and mining developments which are underpinning the region’s growth prospects.

This report examines the key climate change issues in Atlantic Canada and the progress that the four Atlantic provinces are making on these issues.
