Canadians have the resources, ideas, and skills we need to grow our clean energy sector, fight climate change, and thrive in the decades ahead.
The bad news
Flooding will become the new normal. 1-in-100-year flood events in Toronto and Montreal are expected to become 1-in-15-year events.
Wildfires are getting worse. The 2017 and 2018 wildfire seasons were the worst on record in B.C.
74 people died in the Quebec heatwave in 2018, an event scientists say would have been impossible without climate change.
The good news
We can lessen the impacts of climate change while benefitting Canadians.
There were 298,000 jobs in Canada’s clean energy sector in 2017.
Canada’s clean energy sector is growing a third faster than Canada’s economy as a whole. Job creation in the sector is also growing far faster than average too.
