January 18, 2018 — The Government of Canada has launched a $200 million expression of interest for the Emerging Renewable Power Program to expand renewable energy sources available to provinces.

Minister of Natural Resources, Jim Carr, made the announcement. The funding is part of the Government’s investment of $21.9 billion over 11 years to support green infrastructure under the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change.

“This program will help pave the way to a low-carbon future by further diversifying Canada’s clean electricity mix, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting the growth of clean jobs and new green industries,” said Carr.

The Government says this will help drive Canada’s efforts to build a clean economy by expanding commercially viable, investment-ready, renewable power technologies, and will reduce the risks and cost associated with these technologies. According to the government, it will also allow the sector to more easily navigate through regulatory issues.
