Residents of Porterville, California, breathe some of the most polluted air in America—but many have little choice, if they want to pay the bills. Now, thanks to an upstart Canadian success story, the people of Porterville can get to work on making their air cleaner. Some can even do it on their way to work….

VICTORIA—Merran Smith, executive director at Clean Energy Canada, commented today on the swearing-in of B.C. Premier John Horgan and his Cabinet: QUOTES “I’m thrilled that B.C.’s new government is committed to cutting carbon pollution while investing in clean energy innovation and creating jobs throughout the province. “Clean economic growth can benefit all British Columbians, and…

Growth in clean energy is driving significant demand for the metals and mineral products used to manufacture technologies like solar panels, wind turbines, LED lighting and electric cars, creating an…

For many Canadians, a clean energy job probably conjures up images of working in an engineering lab, manufacturing solar panels, or assembling a wind turbine. Sectors like mining are rarely top-of-mind in conversations about building a clean, low-carbon economy. But Canadian resource communities, companies and workers could soon find themselves at the forefront of the…
