Published on 

Équiterre, Pembina Institute, Environmental Defence, Climate Action Network Canada, Conservation Council of New-Brunswick and Ecology Action Centre released this report for a pan-Canadian electrification strategy, in order to reduce GHG emissions, following the Paris Agreement.

Done right, this electrification pathway offers huge job creation potential and will help build healthy and resilient communities across the country".
