Is a Carbon Tax on the Horizon in Ontario?
On February 12, 2015, the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) released a discussion paper outlining the province’s vision for building a low-carbon society and proposed actions to achieve that vision. Key among the proposed actions is a recommendation to impose a price on carbon. Ontario’s Climate Change Discussion Paper: 2015 aims to generate feedback that will assist the province in developing a climate change strategy and action plan to be announced later this year. The MOECC is accepting comments on the discussion paper until March 29, 2015.
