On Friday, Dec 11, the Government of Canada published a document, ‘Clean Fuel Standard – Liquid Fuels Annex’ that will replace the current Renewable Fuels Regulations and be published in Canada Gazette, Part I, for a 75-day public comment period. The Government of Canada aims to publish the final version of the regulations in late 2021.

Following the Canada Gazette, Part I publication, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) are committed to engaging with agricultural stakeholders and together with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) are planning to provide an information session on CFS land use and biodiversity components in January 2021.

In addition, the Government of Canada released “A Healthy Environment and a Healthy Economy”, a climate plan that protects the environment, create jobs and support communities.

The plan is to build a better future with a healthier economy and environment. The climate plan builds on the work done to date and efforts that are already underway and continues down the path that Canadians, governments and businesses have been setting.

It is a key pillar in the Government’s commitment to creating over one million jobs, restoring employment to pre-pandemic levels – of which climate action and clean growth is a cornerstone.

It will make life more affordable for households, it will make Canadian communities more livable, and it will, at every turn, focus on workers and their careers in a stronger and cleaner economy.

Over the next few months, the Government of Canada will work with partners to ensure a strong, workable plan that can be delivered together.
