During a speech to about 400 delegates of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna announced the creation of the Low Carbon Economy Trust, which will pledge $2 billion over the course of four years to projects that "materially" reduce emissions.

McKenna said the trust will also support projects in clean energy that can be commercialized, scaled-up and exported.
