This contribution programme will support the removal of regulatory barriers to enable the harmonisation of provincial/territorial regulations in order to adopt emissions-reducing technologies in the Canadian Trucking Industry, as well as support an increase in the freight transportation industrys participation in air emissions reduction initiatives. In the short-term, Canadian provinces and territories agree to consider amending their regulations to permit the implementation of emissions-reducing technologies in the trucking industry; and agree to the removal of regulatory barriers that will enable harmonisation of provincial/territorial regulations. In the long-term, regulatory barriers will be removed and best practices developed in a harmonised approach across Canada, allowing for the implementation of emissions-reducing technologies in the trucking industry, and achieving the ultimate outcome of a reduction of GHG emissions and air pollutants in the trucking industry.
