Biofuels in Canada: Tracking progress in tackling greenhouse gas emissions from transportation fuels

Download the full report

Every time you fill your vehicle’s tank, a portion of the fuel you buy comes from plants, not fossil fuels.


That’s because, since 2005, provincial and federal policies in Canada have required gasoline and diesel fuel to include some liquid biofuel.

Our latest research shows those policies are working, but if Canada and its provinces want to see biofuel use grow as part of a mix of tools to reduce carbon pollution, governments will need to implement new and stronger to make it happen. Here are 5 principles that should guide biofuel policy as Canada tackles its climate commitments.

We look forward to hearing from you.
