The Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change (PCF) was introduced on December 9, 2016 as a roadmap to assist Canada’s federal and provincial governments to achieve a 2030 target of a 30 percent reduction below 2005 levels of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for the country as a whole. This target also represents Canada’s initial Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) toward the Paris Agreement.
CAN-Rac provided a summary analysis of the policy framework when the PCF 6 was announced, and we followed up with an Action Update on its implementa 7 tion in March 2017. The present document revisits PCF implementation, with some updates on the status of policy implementation, including an outline of some of the opposition we are facing. It includes a run-down of some – but certainly not all – of the work we and our colleagues have done over the past year to guard against mounting opposition to climate change policy progress in Canada, work that is invaluable to all of us as we look for ways to speak about and defend that progress.
