The Climate Change Plan for Canada (released on 21 November 2002) outlines the national strategy to meet the greenhouse gas reduction target under the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The Plan is intended to provide a framework and propose a further range of initiatives for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Plan proposes five key instruments: - for large industrial emitters, covenants, with a regulatory or financial backstop, and emissions trading with access to domestic offsets and international permits; - a Partnership Fund which will allow the Government of Canada to collaborate and leverage investments with provinces, territories and others on emission reduction initiatives; - strategic investments in infrastructure projects; - increased investments in innovation technologies for climate change; and - targeted measures, including information, incentives, regulations and tax measures.
