Environment Canada recently released a consultation document on the development of proposed regulations to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from passenger cars and light trucks for model years 2017 and beyond. As was reported in Torys’ October 2010 EH&S Bulletin, Environment Canada previously issued the Passenger Automobile and Light Truck Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations, which established fleet-average GHG emission standards applicable to companies that manufacture or import new passenger automobiles and light trucks for sale in Canada, for the 2011–2016 model years. The consultation document is posted on the CEPA Environmental Registry for public comment, and the proposed regulations are expected to be available for public comment in 2012.
