About this campaign

Canadian governments give away billions of taxpayer dollars every year in subsidies and special tax treatment to the fossil fuel industry, while it makes record profits and worsens the enormous long-term costs of the climate crisis.

We advocate a tax system that supports a just transition to a clean economy through policies such as ending tax write-offs and special tax treatment for the fossil fuel industry, eliminating fossil fuel subsidies, increasing the cost of carbon pollution for the largest emitters, and tariffs on high-carbon imports.
