The report looks at support for renewable energy, greener transportation and energy efficiency. Key findings of the include:

  • Canadians have missed out on approximately 66,000 jobs because the federal government has failed to match the U.S. in renewable energy investments.
  • Canada’s clean energy investment gap is $11.5 billion – if Canada matched the U.S. on a per person basis, an additional Cdn $11.5 billion would have been invested in clean energy.
  • Canada dedicated less of its stimulus spending to clean energy than Mexico, the U.S., Australia, China and South Korea.
  • If Canada’s spending matched U.S. investment in renewable energy alone, an additional estimated 66,000 jobs would have been created. This does not include the jobs opportunities lost in greener transportation and energy efficiency.
