The Pembina Institute submitted comments to the Government of Canada on its proposal to update and extend its greenhouse gas regulations for the Canadian electricity sector. This letter constitutes the Pembina Institute’s initial submission to the consultation process initiated by Environment and Climate Change Canada’s (ECCC) Notice of Intent.

Several important questions pertaining to the design and stringency of the forthcoming federal standards remain unresolved. However, we applaud the decision to accelerate Canada’s coal phase-out and to promote the shift to cleaner sources of electricity across Canada, and look forward to working with the department to ensure ambitious rules are produced.
