Climate change is one of the most important environmental issues of our time. Climate change is caused by the increase in concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Climate change is a real and urgent crisis, caused by human activity, which affects the environment, biodiversity, the health of Canadians and the Canadian economy.

What Happened?

The Canadian House of Commons passed a motion declaring a national climate emergency, and supporting Canada’s commitment to meet the Paris Agreement emissions targets.

Conservative MPs voted against the motion, but it still passed 186-63 with the support of the Liberals, New Democrats, Bloc Quebecois, and Green MPs.

The motion was put forward by Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna.

Why It Matters

The motion describes climate change as a “real and urgent crisis, driven by human activity,” notes how it is impacting Canadians and states the need to pursue clean growth methods to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
