Climate change plans
The government of Prince Edward Island’s Climate Change Strategy was published in 2008 and is designed to improve education and awareness surrounding climate change issues, as well as to promote GHG reduction predominantly through the provincial government’s Office of Energy Efficiency. Implementation plans for many of the items identified in the Strategy have not yet been published by the provincial government. The province does not currently have legislation addressing carbon taxation or pricing.
The province has established a Climate Change Secretariat that is working to develop a Climate Change Action Plan involving separate mitigation and adaptation strategies. The Secretariat has been engaged in public consultation to this end.
