Action on Climate Change: Our Sustainable Future

Protecting the environment and growing the economy go hand in hand. Taking action on climate change means doing our part to reduce emissions, but it will also help Canada to diversify our economy and generate well-paying jobs.

Energy Efficiency

NRCan is helping Canada to lead the way in energy efficiency in the fields of housing, building, communities, industry and transportation.

Low-Carbon Transportation

We are working to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions by informing Canadians, businesses and governments about fuel-efficient vehicles and driving behaviours.

Mission Innovation

As part of this global initiative, Canada will double investments in clean energy innovation and encourage more private sector investment in transformative clean energy technologies.


ENERGY STAR® is helping Canadians save money on energy bills, increasing the competitiveness of our commercial and institutional sector, and helping us fight climate change.

Climate and Forests

Climate is a major influencing factor on forests, and forests in turn influence climate. Learn about the Canadian Forest Service’s research on climate change.


Some effects of climate change are already being felt. Learn how we are working to reduce the negative impacts of climate change and to take advantage of new opportunities.
