To fight against catastrophic climate change, Canada needs to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to near zero by mid-century at the latest. This amounts to a new, green industrial revolution that will have transformative impacts on the nature of work. In addition, there are important employment implications as to how we respond or adapt to climate change itself. The aim of this report is to contribute to a growing conversation about industrial and employment strategies the federal government can use to transition to a sustainable economy and create a new generation of well-paying green jobs.
