Proposed Clean Fuel StandardSubmission to the federal government's discussion paper

Publication - April 25, 2017 - By Erin Flanagan, Dianne Zimmerman, Karen Tam Wu

The Pembina Institute is committed to participating in a constructive consultation process between Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and the many stakeholders for whom the regulation of fuels on a national basis in Canada is of paramount concern.

We are pleased to be afforded the chance to engage the government early in the development of this important policy. The submission begins with an explanation of our general perspective on the CFS and the importance of its implementation within the wider national policy context. We also propose key design principles that we believe should guide the development of the regulation. Subsequently, we explore different questions of policy design and offer thoughts and recommendations relating to the scope, coverage, compliance pathways and potential policy interactions of the proposed CFS.
