WEBINAR: How Atlantic Canada can recycle carbon tax revenues

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

Atlantic Canada has recently been discussing the possibility of implementing a regional carbon tax. Putting a price on carbon will generate revenue. How this revenue is recycled back into the economy can affect both economic and environmental objectives. Join us for a panel discussion to discuss the trade-offs of different revenue recycling options, including how to address household fairness and business competitiveness.

Date: Thursday, April 14, 2016
Time: 12:30-1:30 pm NST
