Climate Change Description:

In 2008, Ontario introduced regulations requiring all landfills larger than 1.5 million cubic meters to install landfill gas collection and flaring systems. Currently, most of the largest landfills are now collecting landfill gas in Ontario.


Emission reductions for Ontario’s agriculture and waste sectors are combined. Combined estimated mitigation impact of 2 Mt applies to initiatives related to:

  • Biogas Financial Assistance Program
  • Landfill gas capture regulation
  • Other policies and programs in the waste and agricultural sectors.
