This interactive dashboard monitors Canada’s progress toward a clean energy growth economy, tracking indicators under three themes: economy, environment, and society. Users can filter by energy segment and reference period.

Document Highlights

  • Canada is making good progress. Pricing carbon emissions, adopting new regulations, and investing in innovative technology are driving sustainable outcomes.
  • Canada’s economy is becoming more energy-efficient. Economic growth has outpaced total energy use over the past two decades.
  • Technology and environmental practices are improving. Firms are increasing output and decreasing associated emissions and impacts. Sustaining this trend is key.
  • The environmental performance of energy consumers is falling. Water consumption is increasing and the volume of GHGs emitted by consumers is concerning.
  • Energy producers are on a positive path following weaker environmental performance earlier in the decade. GHG emissions are down, energy intensity is down, and the energy mix is adding renewables.
  • Energy affordability continues to improve as consumer prices are outpacing growth in energy prices. But not all Canadians enjoy easy access to low-cost or clean energy.
