Canada’s green future

Meeting the global economy is moving toward a greener future and Canada is working to keep pace. Natural Resources Canada wants to increase the creation and adoption of clean technologies in key sectors of the Canadian economy: energy, mining and forestry.

You are probably already using clean technology in your day-to-day life. For example, programmable thermostats that maximize efficiency and off-peak energy usage are saving Canadians money on their heating bills, while helping to prevent carbon emissions. Similarly, Canadian industries will benefit from adopting more clean tech.
