About The Submission:
By signing the Paris Agreement, Canada made a commitment to do its fair share to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C. So far, Canada is off course from meeting our domestic and international climate obligations. Impact assessments are an important tool for meaningful action on climate. The decisions made with regards to Canada’s energy and industrial infrastructure have consequences for generations. We cannot afford to move ahead with an approach to impact assessment that continues to favour the approval of new fossil fuel or high-emissions projects.
