CanREA pleased to see a climate action focus in Federal Ministers’ mandate letters

CanREA continues its positive work with the federal government to further evolve climate-centred policies, advance renewable energy and achieve positive outcomes for Canadians.

Ottawa, December 17, 2021—CanREA is pleased to note the “whole-of-government effort to reduce emissions, create clean jobs and address the climate-related challenges” in all the new ministerial mandate letters, issued by the Government of Canada on December 16. 

“This government is on the right track by prioritizing climate action for all Ministerial mandates,” said Brandy Giannetta, Vice President Policy, Regulatory & Government Affairs. “This is the priority that we want to see from this government.”  

This is another clear signal of this government’s willingness to take action that will enable low-cost renewables. Wind energy, solar energy and energy storage will play a key role in collaborative solutions for decarbonizing the Canadian economy while bringing strong environmental and economic benefits for communities.  

“We look forward to continuing our work with the Federal Government to further evolve these climate-centred policies, advance renewable energy and achieve positive outcomes for Canadians,” said Giannetta.
