The Government of Canada has launched consultations on border carbon adjustments (BCA) that expect to level the playing field for Canadian industry.  The policy is aimed at ensuring imported goods are subject to the same carbon pricing as domestically produced good and that exported goods are not disadvantaged in markets with lower, or no, carbon pricing.  A discussion paper outlines foundational information and key considerations and Finance Canada will begin consultations with provinces, territories and industry associations.
