Canada’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Released

The Government of Canada simultaneously released the National Inventory Report, the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program facility-level data and related overview report, and the greenhouse gas indicators of the Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators program in April. The Government of Canada has praised the data pointing out that emissions have not increased while the economy has grown. Critics point out however, that at the current rate, Canada will not meet the targets set for 2020.


Canada and other signatories to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change have submitted the National Inventory data to the UNFCCC, which has released the national inventory submissions of greenhouse gas emissions by all signatories. The report includes sectoral and trend tables for all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals, and sectoral background data tables for reporting implied emission factors and activity data.
