Canada announces post-2016 emission regulations for light-duty vehicles

22 September 2014

Environment Canada announced new regulatory initiatives to align GHG and criteria emission requirements for model year 2017 and later light-duty vehicles with those of the United States.

In addition, Environment Canada announced that it will start developing more stringent GHG emission and fuel consumption standards for post-2018 model year heavy-duty vehicles and engines. These regulations will be harmonized with the Phase 2 GHG regulations for heavy-duty vehicles that are under development in the United States.

Canadian emission regulations for engines and vehicles are generally harmonized with the respective US requirements. However, a number of differences exist in the detailed phase-in schedules and other particulars. For instance, Canadian engine emission standards do not include the US-style emission averaging, banking and trading programs.
