Towards a Clean Energy Accord
In the spring of 2012, Tides Canada hosted a series of meetings across the country to discuss how a Canadian energy strategy could help accelerate the nation’s transition to a prosperous low-carbon economy. The result is Towards a Clean Energy Accord.
This document is a collaborative, solutions-focused call for federal, provincial, and aboriginal governments to embrace the responsibility and opportunity of developing a bold new energy strategy for Canada. It outlines the opportunities and imperative of the energy transition, and reiterates the principles that any Canadian energy strategy must embrace. It also outlines the high-level policy priorities that a number of Canadian energy leaders told us any such plan should address.
We are now working to build support for the principles embodied in the document with an executive summary and statement of support.

Towards a Clean Energy Accord builds upon principles outlined in a 2011 document called A New Energy Vision for Canada. That vision enjoyed broad support from a diverse group of Canadian business, academia, and non-profit leaders, as well as local governments.
