  • Over the 2008–2012 period, municipalities in Canada have invested $2.3 billion in over 800 emission reduction measures, achieving ongoing annual emission reductions of 1.8 million tons. 
  • Energy supply varies dramatically across regions, though as a whole, urban areas are significantly more ecient and have lower per capita emissions than their rural counterparts regardless of energy supply makeup.
