Coal Phase-Out

Canada

In Canada, 14 coal-fired power plants operating in four provinces were responsible for approximately 8.5% of all the greenhouse gases emitted in 2014. A 2030 phase-out of these plants, if done properly, could prevent 1,008 premature deaths and 871 hospital admissions or emergency room visits between 2015 and 2035. While CAPE and its partners have won a commitment from the Federal Government to phase-out coal plants by 2030, we continue to work for regulations that would maximize health and climate benefits.
