WEBINAR: Carbon pricing in the Atlantic Provinces – implications for business and competitiveness

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

The Atlantic Provinces Economic Council (APEC) is pleased to co-host this exclusive free webinar briefing and discussion on March 27, 2018, which is intended to:

  • help businesses understand how policymakers are approaching the implementation of carbon pricing;
  • discuss how firms’ competitiveness concerns can be addressed; and
  • provide businesses with an opportunity to ask questions.

Webinar Overview

Carbon pricing is coming to the Atlantic provinces in 2019. The impact of carbon pricing on the competitiveness of the region’s larger exporters and emitters is a key concern.

How can the Atlantic provinces best design their own carbon pricing programs? How does the federal government’s carbon pricing backstop address the competitiveness issue? This is relevant as the Atlantic provinces can choose to utilize the federal backstop. And if provincial pricing programs do not meet federal requirements, the federal backstop may be implemented, in whole or in part. Are there some useful design features in the federal program that the provinces can adopt for their own programs?

Join the Discussion

There will be lots of opportunities for firms to share their questions and provide input on this topic.
Speakers will address questions such as:

  • What are the administrative costs on my business due to carbon pricing?
  • What if I am the only provincial firm in my industry subject to a carbon price?
  • How can I compete if US suppliers are not subject to a carbon price?
  • Will output-based pricing trigger more US tariffs?
  • When will I know if the federal backstop will apply in my province?
  • How can I use carbon pricing to benefit my business?
