Getting to 2050: Canada's Transition to a Low-emission Future

National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (2008 Report)

The inescapable effects of climate change and air pollution over the next decades require Canada to embark upon a transition to a low-emission society. This will require significant changes to our energy systems – both in terms of energy production and consumption.
We will need to anticipate the nature and scope of that transition and what it will look like to manage our response smartly. This will enable us to maintain the health of our economy and meet our environmental objectives.

The NRT set out five enabling conditions to guide this transition: work in concert with the world; exhibit policy certainty; implement an economy-wide price signal, deploy all necessary technologies; and integrate air pollution and climate change policies.
