Canada has missed every greenhouse gas emission (GHG) reduction target that has been set prior to its 2030 target. In order to meet our obligations to address climate change, a legal framework is needed to ensure accountability.

This detailed publication and 10 page policy brief outline how domestic climate accountability legislation is a key means to consolidate political support for climate agendas, to provide the framework for implementation of the Paris Agreement and for assessing progress, as well as to enable ratcheting-up of ambition going forward.
