18 Dec Carbon Pricing Programs in Americas
On October 3, 2016, the Government of Canada announced a Pan-Canadian Pricing on Carbon Pollution which states that all Canadian provinces will have carbon pricing in place by 2018. Provinces can be flexible in deciding whether they want to implement a carbon tax or a cap-and-trade program. The price on carbon will start at a minimum $10 per tonne CO2 eq in 2018 and increase by $10 a year to reach a $50 per tonne CO2 eq by 2022.
