The purpose of this project was to review current policies that influence transportation energy use and then put forward a comprehensive policy option framework approach that would support the reduction of energy demand and GHG emissions from transportation in Canada. The project report articulates and explains the key factors that influence energy demand in Canada’s transportation sector, and highlights how these factors interact at a system-wide level. The report also puts forward a diverse range of policy options and highlights many areas in which Canada can maintain or establish global leadership positions in low-carbon transportation options, fostering clean economic growth.
