About Canada

Canada has proposed to phase out domestic coal power use by 2030 for all coal plants without carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. To date, the country’s phaseout is proceeding slowly, leaving 5,247 megawatts (MW) of operating coal power capacity. Canada is a major coal exporter globally. Canada's July 2021 Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) submission under the Paris agreement sets a target of reducing emissions by 40-45% below 2005 levels by 2030. Canada has also committed to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Canada is a member of the Powering Past Coal Alliance.
