Let's Build Infrastructure.

Canada’s climate is warming twice as fast as the global average.

The impacts of climate change on Canada are profound and far-reaching. Increasing heat waves and smog days, more severe floods, shrinking glaciers, permafrost thawing and drying of the Canadian interior will put strain not only on us, but the cities and infrastructure we rely on. In fact, from 2000 to 2015, the costs from extreme weather events in Canada were greater than in all previous years combined. The costs will only get worse, rising from $5 billion per year in 2020 to between $21 and $43 billion per year by 2050.

Canada has a part to play. We’re the world’s 38th most populous country, but the seventh-largest emitter of greenhouse gases. Collectively, Canadians produce more GHGs per person than any other G20 economy.

How can we fight back against climate change?
By Building Canada.

Meeting Canada’s climate goals could generate more than 3.3 million direct jobs in the building trades and 17 million total jobs, including induced, indirect and supply-chain jobs.

Let's Build Transit!

If we built $150 billion of urban transit infrastructure between now and 2050, we can create about 245,000 jobs.

Let's Build Resilience!

If we invested in net-zero building retrofits and new green construction techniques for industrial, commercial and institutional buildings, we could create nearly 2 million jobs.

Let's Build Energy!

If we built small district energy systems in half of Canada’s cities with more than 100,000 people by 2050, we can create almost  22,000 construction jobs.

Let's Build Renewable Power

If we moved Canada to a power grid supply composed mainly of hydroelectric, new wind, solar, geothermal and tidal power, plus legacy nuclear, it would result in more than 1 million jobs by 2050.

Building a better Canada starts with building. Let’s invest in the infrastructure we need to face the challenge of climate change together.

Canada’s energy sector can play a part in building the economy of the future. The energy sector generated about 250,000 construction jobs in 2018. With new technologies, like carbon capture, traditional energy can contribute to building the infrastructure needed to meet Canada’s climate goals.
