Climate Change

Climate change is affecting all jurisdictions in Canada.

Federal, provincial and territorial ministers recognise that addressing climate change is a shared responsibility and are working collaboratively and within their jurisdictions to take action.

CCME works on priorities identified by ministers to effectively address climate change including collaborative actions to implement the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change (PCF) as well as examining issues related to COVID-19 recovery efforts and emissions reductions, climate funding and net-zero emissions. In addition, CCME is developing guidance for management of contaminated sites located in permafrost and permafrost transition zones.
