In response to the release of the Western Climate Initiative's ("WCI") Regional Program Design, the government of Ontario has proposed new guidelines and amendments to the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Reporting Regulation (O. Reg. 452/09).

The proposed amendments are meant to align the regulations with the WCI program and also now include nitrogen trifluoride as a GHG.

The proposed amendments and guidelines have been posted on the Environmental Registry and will be open for comment for 45 days, ending October 25, 2010.
