The Action Plan is composed of 26 measures that revolve around two main objectives: reducing or avoiding GHG emissions and adapting to climate change


The actions pl allow Québec to reduce its GHG emissions by 14.6 megatons of equivalent CO2 and bring its emissions to 82.5 megatons of equivalent CO2 by 2012, which is 6% below the 1990 level. 

The Action Plan flows from four master principles:

  • Quebec’s taking responsibility in its constitutional areas of jurisdiction
  • Economic efficacy to preserve the competitiveness of Québec enterprises
  • Intervention complementarities to maximize positive effects
  • Commitment of all players in Québec society: ordinary citizens, enterprises, municipalities and public institutions.

The actions laid out in this plan target Québec’s jurisdictional domains, i.e. energy production, transport and distribution, road transportation, municipalities, landfill management, agriculture, health, civil protection, the environment, natural resources and territorial planning.
