As it announced in Budget 2019-2020, the government is enhancing measures in the 2013-2020 Climate Change Action Plan (2013-2020 CCAP) and incorporating new measures into it. The financial framework is being increased from $4.05 billion to $4.86 billion. The changes being made immediately seek to maximize by late 2020 greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions in Québec and bolster initiatives in the realm of adaptation to climate change. At the same time, a sweeping initiative is under way to elaborate the future electrification and climate change plan, slated for unveiling in early 2020, in order to meet Québec’s 2030 GHG emission reduction targets.

Government action in the fight against climate change is both structured and flexible, with new initiatives to be added over the course of 2013-2020.
