Canada a country with the second largest geographic area in the world hosts a variety of hydrocarbon and renewable energy resources in different areas. In light of the commitments made by the Canadian Federal Government in Paris in December 2016 to reduce the national level of GHG emissions, provincial governments are adopting a variety of policies and regulations that reflect the availability of different energy resources and the existing energy infrastructure in each jurisdiction. The Pan-Canadian Carbon Plan will create a floor price on carbon and allow each of the provincial governments to implement a provincial carbon tax or employ broader market based mechanisms.
