2013-2020 Climate Change Action Plan

The 2013-2020 Climate Change Action Plan (2013-2020 CCAP) was amended in the spring of 2020 to clarify measures the government intends to implement to better support major industrial emitters in their energy transition following the announcement of additional funding for this purpose in the 2019-2020 budget. Federal funding from the Low Carbon Economy Fund (LCEF) deposited into the Green Fund has also been formally included in the 2013-2020 CCAP budget. As a result of these changes, its total budget increases from $4.86 billion to nearly $5.07 billion.

The electrification and climate change strategy, the 2030 Plan for a Green Economy currently being drafted, will lay out the actions the government plans to take to meet Québec’s GHG emission reduction target by 2030 and strengthen its resilience to climate change. The strategy will be unveiled in the fall of 2020 at the same time as its first implementation plan.  

The 2013-2020 Climate Change Action Plan (2013-2020 CCAP) (French, PDF, 3,7 Mo), whose budget is derived from the Green Fund, is currently the tool by which Québec is framing its action in the fight against climate change.

The Plan includes 30 priorities and more than 150 actions led by 14 Government of Québec ministries and other bodies.

Thanks to the Green Fund (French), whose revenue comes mainly from the carbon market, the government supports companies, municipalities and private citizens in transitioning to a low carbon world.

Up to now, more than 20 programs and a variety of initiatives have been launched to address the following challenges:

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. To this end, a Climate Change Advisory Committee comprised of experts in a variety of fields was set up in 2014 to counsel the government on climate change issues.
