On February 3, Clean Energy Canada and the Pembina Institute hosted a live webinar about B.C.'s climate plan.

Date: Friday, February 3, 2017

(Update: The webinar has ended. For the video recording and slides, please see below.)


Clean Energy Canada and the Pembina Institute hosted a public online forum about the state of British Columbia’s climate policies on February 3.

The one-hour event featured guest speakers from the City of Vancouver, Thompson Rivers University, and National Observer, who shared their perspectives on climate action in the province. A Q&A session followed.

We also outlined the results of the first independent assessment of B.C.’s climate plan in combination with the federal government’s carbon price schedule. (Navius Research prepared the analysis for the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, Pembina Institute, and Clean Energy Canada.)
