G20 Energy Efficiency Policies and Measures

Canada

Description: Within the framework ecoEnergy, public authorities have implemented energy efficiency programmes (public buildings, transport, industries), which are managed by the Office of Energy Efficiency. Canada has no federal energy efficiency improvement target; the federal governments outline their own quantitative objectives. As a result of the Council of Federation held in 2007, the provincial and territorial governments committed to achieve a 20 per cent increase in energy efficiency by 2020.
National energy efficiency target: 20% increase in energy efficiency.
Target year: 2020
