  • Carbon Pricing In Nova Scotia - The EAC Energy Team has been an active participant in discussions in the lead up to the November 2016, announcement from the government of Nova Scotia that it will implement a cap-and trade system to price carbon pollution, starting in 2018.  Our work has included convening coalitions of support for just carbon pricing, hosting two multi-stakeholder carbon pricing forums, and a public panel series on developing Nova Scotia's cap-and-trade system. Read more about our work to develop an effective and equitable carbon pricing system for Nova Scotia here.


  • Nova Scotia Needs New Climate Goals - Nova Scotia has set strong climate goals in the past. They allowed us to achieve our previous climate targets, created thousands of jobs, and build more than 100 community and Indigenous-owned renewable energy projects. But there are currently no legislated climate and environmental goals past the year 2020.   Recently, the Nova Scotia government took the first step towards setting new goals – a one-month online public consultation.  

    Thank you for making your voices heard — 800 folks used our online submission form to tell the province they want strong climate goals.


  • Goals to Advance the Environmental and Economic Well-being of Nova Scotia: The Ecology Action Centre is keen to see a renewed Environmental Goals and Sustainability Act. We feel it is important that as many Nova Scotians as possible engage on this Act as its goals touch on nearly every facet of our lives. As part of this process, we made the following submission to the EGSPA consultation process.
