OTTAWA, April 8, 2019 /CNW/ - Clean growth is essential for Canada's transportation system ? to meet our emission reduction targets, grow our economy, and build resilience to a changing climate.

Funding provided through the Program will advance knowledge and technology innovation that contribute to reducing emissions from the transportation sector.
