As hopeful signs appear that Canada is emerging from a painful year beset by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now critical to focus more attention on addressing the related climate and biodiversity crises, and shaping a world that is equitable, carbon-neutral and nature-positive, for current and future generations of Canadians and people worldwide.
Building on the Green Budget Coalition’s expertise, this Preliminary Recommendations for Budget 2022 document provides a comprehensive package of timely budget and fiscal recommendations focused on nurturing ongoing well-being for all, by creating jobs while focusing on the following overlapping objectives:
- Net Zero Emissions by 2050

For all of these areas, we emphasize the importance of effective implementation, monitoring and evaluation to ensure successful outcomes from new and ongoing programs.
Implementing these Green Budget Coalition recommendations would lead to transformative progress in advancing enduring environmental, economic, and social prosperity for all people in Canada from coast to coast to coast.
