Proposed Regulations

Regulations Amending the Ozone-depleting Substances and Halocarbon Alternatives Regulations

The proposed Regulations Amending the Ozone- depleting Substances and Halocarbon Alternatives Regulations (the proposed Amendments) aim to reduce the supply of HFCs that enter into Canada and the demand for HFCs in manufactured products, thereby averting future HFC releases to the environment. This would reduce Canadian GHG emissions, help limit global warming, and contribute to Canada's international obligations to combat climate change. The proposed Amendments also aim to put Canada in a position to ratify the amendment to the Montreal Protocol.
