Canada’s 2030 target for greenhouse gas emissions fall short in the run up due to lack of prioritization!

The federal government is set to miss its 2030 target to cut carbon emissions by at least 40 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030, according to the latest audit from the commissioner of the environment’s office.

The commissioner’s fall reports looked at five key areas: the government’s fleet of zero-emissions vehicles, construction of charging stations, monitoring the catch of marine fisheries, the status of environmental petitions presented to Parliament and the government’s progress on reducing emissions.

The report painted a grim picture of emission reductions in Canada over the past 20 years, saying that the only significant drops in emissions came during the 2008 financial crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic, which had little to do with emissions reduction policy.

“Canada is the only G7 country that has not achieved any emissions reductions since 1990,” Jerry DeMarco, commissioner of the environment and sustainable development, told reporters recently.

Under the terms of the Kyoto Protocol, which the House of Commons ratified in 2002, Canada committed to cutting total emissions to 5 per cent below 1990 levels. Shortly after coming into office in 2015, the Liberals agreed to adopt the Paris Accord targets.

“While the 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan included important mitigation measures to reduce emissions, some of these measures, such as the Oil and Gas Emissions Cap and the Clean Fuel Regulations, have been delayed,” the audit said.

“We found that the measures most critical for reducing emissions had not been identified or prioritized.”


Let us look briefly at the problems:

The report said some of the measures in the 2030 plan lacked timetables that specified when those measures would be implemented.

The report was also critical of the accountability measures in the government’s plan, saying “the responsibility for reducing emissions and achieving the 2030 and 2050 targets is fragmented among multiple federal organizations.

The audit looked at four government departments and agencies — National Defence, Parks Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Canada Border Services Agency — which collectively own 10,580 of the federal government’s 17,260 vehicles. Zero emission vehicles accounted for only between one and three per cent of their fleets.
