Coal Phase-Out


In 1999, coal plants in Ontario produced almost one third of the electricity, and emitted 20% of the province’s greenhouse gases, 23% of its sulphur dioxide, and 23% of its mercury. A study prepared for the Ontario Ministry of the Environment estimated that the coal phase-out would produce $3 billion per year in health benefits by reducing air pollution-related premature deaths, chronic heart and lung diseases, hospital admissions, and emergency room visits. The last coal plant in Ontario was closed in 2014.
