Survey of Canadian Federal, Provincial, Territorial Climate Change Provisions (updated)

This survey [ Updated-Survey-Climate-Change-Provisions-in-FPT-Law ] updates the research conducted at CELA in November 2014. It provides current climate change provisions across Canada as found in Canadian Legislation intended to address climate change and related subjects, as well as legislation for other purposes. The majority of the research for this survey was conducted on CanLII and reflects search results in all jurisdictions for the following terms: ‘climate change’, ‘global warming’, and ‘greenhouse gas.’
Note that the research took place between February 21, 2019 and April 16, 2019. As such, it may not capture all climate change provisions or reflect recent developments.
Following the federal legislation, provinces are listed alphabetically. No provisions were found for the territories. The context section provides a brief description of the legislation or additional information. Examples of the climate change provisions and the language used are excerpted.
