New report on large vehicles in Canada: Équiterre issues an urgent call to action

Published on 


Équiterre has released a report sounding the alarm on a major threat to Canada’s and Quebec's climate targets: the proliferation of light-duty trucks on our roads.

The report, The Rise of Light-Duty Trucks in Canada: Reversing the Trend - Synthesis (English version coming soon), features eight studies co-authored with CIRANO, HEC Montréal and the Mobility Chair of Polytechnique Montréal. Among other things, the report sheds light on the impacts of Canadians’ growing preference for oversized, fuel-inefficient vehicles, including sport utility vehicles (SUVs).
