Say no to coal in Canada

Big win! Ottawa puts an end to coal-fired power in Canada.

On November 21, 2016 the federal government announced a plan to speed up the shift off coal, Canada’s dirtiest power source. Under the new regulations, Canada will be free of conventional coal-fired electricity by 2030.

This is a major win for public health, the environment and the economy. The David Suzuki Foundation’s climate team has been working on this issue for more than a decade.

This success would not have been possible without the tens of thousands of people who sent letters to the government through our "Say no to coal in Canada" online action. Thank you! We delivered an anti-coal letter to Parliament Hill, representing over 35,000 people in Canada, on the day of the government’s announcement.
