Canada begins consultations on vehicle emission standards



OTTAWA, Aug. 20, 2018 /CNW/ - Canada's light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas emission standards are supporting innovation, a cleaner and more competitive economy, and action on climate change, and they are saving consumers money at the pump.

Today, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, announced that the Government of Canada has published a discussion paper to begin consultations on the mid-term evaluation of Canada's light-duty vehicle greenhouse gas emission regulations for the 2022?2025 model years. These consultations are part of a commitment Canada made in 2014 when the regulations were published. 

The consultations will focus on a wide range of issues and emerging trends in the transportation industry. Some examples include the following:

During these consultations, Canada will continue to pay close attention to the U.S. regulatory process, which is also underway, to revise existing standards for vehicle fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions in that country. As well, Canada will monitor the actions of California, other U.S. states, and the many other global jurisdictions that are also developing measures to address greenhouse gas emissions from light-duty vehicles.

Interested Canadians can submit their comments to Environment and Climate Change Canada until September 28, 2018.
