In order to meet commitments to combat climate change and build an economy based on
clean growth, Canada should maintain the current 2022-2025 LDV emissions standards and
remove the automatic reference to the U.S. EPA CAFE and greenhouse gas emissions
programs, maintaining Canada’s current vehicle emissions trajectory for model years
Should Canada uphold the 2022-2025 LDV emissions standards, the country stands to gain
more than just reduced GHG emissions; consumers will see more money in their pockets, and
innovative Canadian companies will be able to continue to grow and export their technology,
vehicles, and parts around the world.
The mid-term evaluation of the Passenger Automobile and Light Truck Greenhouse Gas
Emission Regulations represents an opportunity for Canada to continue showing global
leadership in the fight against climate change while creating economic opportunity at home.
We strongly encourage ECCC to seize this opportunity and maintain, or strengthen,
Canada’s 2022-2025 LDV emissions standards.
