Sommet de Québec sur les changements climatiques
(Québec City Summit on Climate Change)

The Québec City Summit on Climate Change was held on April 14, 2015, at the initiative of Premier Philippe Couillard. The premiers of all provinces and territories were invited to the summit, which aimed to:

  • Pool the experience and vision of each province and territory regarding the costs and benefits of reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) and adapting to the consequences of climate change;
  • Foster exchanges on the best possible practices for reducing GHG emissions and the businesses opportunities linked to them;
  • Discuss additional possibilities for intergovernmental collaboration to foster a low-carbon economy and at the same time address energy- and climate-related issues;
  • Assert the role that Canada’s provinces and territories can play in contributing to the success of the international climate conference, which will take place in Paris in December 2015.

At the close of this important meeting, the provinces and territories adopted a declaration (PDF, 96 KB) reaffirming their shared commitment to the fight against climate change. The initiative was unprecedented in Canada and expressed the desire of the provinces and territories to act as key players in this area.
