Trade plans with California and Quebec, which will allow industrial polluters to purchase additional emissions when necessary, or to sell emissions that they do not use.
The government has committed all of this funding to initiatives that will help individuals, companies and municipalities adapt to new clean technologies that will reduce their carbon footprint.
Ontario aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 15% per cent by 1990 from 2020 levels, by 37% per cent in 2030 and by 80% per cent in 2050.
