Ontario’s Climate Change Strategy outlines the steps the government will take, including:

  • Introducing climate legislation that, if passed, would establish a long-term framework for action and make the cap and trade program law in Ontario.
  • Integrating climate change mitigation and adaptation considerations into government decision-making and infrastructure planning.
  • Introducing changes to government operations, procurement, employee training, building retrofits and in other areas to help government move towards carbon neutrality.
  • Developing a coordinated approach to reduce emissions from new and existing buildings.
  • Reducing emissions from transportation by promoting the uptake of zero emission and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
