Canada's Federal Fossil Fuel Subsidies in 2020

 This inventory documents the current state of federal fossil fuel subsidies in Canada.The most recent estimate of fossil fuel subsidies in 2019 is nearly CAD 600 million, an increase from our 2018 assessment due to several large investments in oil and gas sector-related infrastructure. However, this figure is a conservative estimate, as it does not include subsidies for which publicly available data were lacking, such as tax-related subsidies. Information on subsidies should be more transparent to allow for a more comprehensive inventory.The Canadian government also has committed to phasing out “inefficient fossil fuel subsidies” by 2025 in line with commitments made at the G20 and G7
