Canada’s Greenhouse Gas emissions profile is changing because Canada’s commitment to the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has triggered substantive policy initiatives by Canada and various provinces aimed at drastic reductions in GHG emissions. This will have profound impacts on Canada’s economy, provinces, industries, and citizens.

Governments at all levels are taking the first steps to implement carbon management strategies, including carbon pricing. Canada will be imposing a carbon price across the country in 2018 with a backstop-pricing scheme applicable to provinces that do not have carbon-pricing rules or where those rules are deemed to be insufficient. British Columbia has adopted a revenue-neutral carbon tax approach and Alberta is combining a carbon levy with an output based allocation system. Ontario and Quebec are setting caps on carbon emissions and letting carbon be priced by a competitive auction trading system.

How do these systems compare and how will they impact companies operating in different parts of the country and therefore facing different and possibly conflicting carbon-pricing rules and regulations? Further, how will Canadian businesses fare when competing in export markets that have no, much less stringent or much different carbon-pricing strategies in place?

Government actions to date have been long on goals and policy statements while coming up short on underlying analysis of the costs of the measures being taken and the impacts on regional and local economies and on commercial operations and investment. What’s more, carbon-pricing and government program initiatives designed to meet the GHG emission reduction targets in the various sectors alone may well be insufficient. Not only will they need to rely on technologies that are still under development or early in the implementation stages, but on major behavioural changes on the part of consumers.

Registration is open for APEC's Major Projects event!
This is the 11th annual event which includes the release of APEC's Major Projects Inventory (MPI). Major investment projects are a key force propelling Atlantic Canada's economy forward. Capitalizing on these investments is essential to growing your business, and Major Projects 2018 provides the perspective you need to profit from these opportunities. Last year's MPI identified 412 projects with $132 billion of potential investment activity in Atlantic Canada.
The conference has become a “must attend” event for business leaders seeking a competitive edge when it comes to planning, forecasting and project leads.  It also includes the opportunity to network with developers, financiers, oil and gas executives, lawyers, accountants and leaders from the construction industry.
A special focus for this year’s event will be Technology and Innovation in Major Projects. The adoption of new technologies such as business information modelling, advanced analytics, 3-D printing, sensor technology and automation are improving the productivity of capital investment projects and creating new opportunities for growth.   
Breakfast begins at 7:45 a.m.   Program begins at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 10:30 a.m.
