The Pan-Canadian Framework is Canada’s climate plan to achieve GHG emissions reductions. Achieving targets and transitioning to a low-carbon future requires a number of changes and investments across energy systems. Canadians have a role to play in these transitions both as consumers and members of the public. It is therefore important to know why and under what conditions Canadians support or do not support, and are willing or not willing to contribute to Canada’s energy transitions. Such knowledge will help with providing dialogue, informing decision-making, and anticipating points of conflict in the transition process. Further, public views on the country’s transitions will help improve relationships among key stakeholders. Building this capacity is a key objective of Energy Exchange the project partner.
