|Description||The Government launched the Federal House in Order programme with C$44 million, planning to expand the programme over five years with a further C$50 million in 2004. As of 2004, the 11 departments involved in this initiative had reduced GHG emissions by 24%.
In the context of renewable energy, the government pursued several measures, including:
Increasing the use of lower-emitting vehicles in the federal fleet and reducing GHG emissions from fleet operations.
Continuing to work toward fulfilling a commitment to meet 20% of federal electricity requirements from emerging low- or non-emitting sources.
The government suspended funding for the Federal House in Order programme in March 2006, without sponsoring a similar initiative in the programme's place.
