Realizing Opportunities: Emissions Trading in Manitoba

By on January 13, 2004
In January 2004, the Task Force on Emissions Trading and the Manitoba Economy released its report. The task force, chaired by the honourable Lloyd Axworthy, made 17 recommendations regarding economic and environmental opportunities for Manitoba as part of Canada's proposed domestic emissions trading system. The recommendations stem from three overarching conclusions: (1) Manitoba has a natural advantage in offsets and clean electricity; (2) 2008, the planned start date for the trading system, is too late; and (3) we need to get the trading system right in the long run. David Runnalls, IISD's President and CEO, was a member of the task force and IISD served as secretariat.
