GOVERNMENT NOTICES

DEPARTMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT

CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT, 1999

Notice of intent to develop regulations to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions from on-road heavy-duty vehicles and engines

Notice is hereby given that the Department of the Environment intends to develop regulations under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999) to further reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from on-road heavy-duty vehicles and their engines for post-2018 model years.

Background

Transportation is one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in Canada. In 2011, 24% of total Canadian greenhouse gas emissions came from transportation sources and 7% of total emissions came from heavy-duty vehicles alone. The Government is committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by implementing a sector-by-sector approach, and has already published GHG regulations for Canada’s transportation and electricity sectors.

The publication in the Canada Gazette, Part II, on March 13, 2013, of the Heavy-Duty Vehicle and Engine Greenhouse Gas Emission Regulations (hereinafter referred as the current Regulations) was an important step toward meeting Canada’s commitments to reduce GHG emissions. The objective of the current Regulations is to reduce GHG emissions by establishing mandatory GHG emission standards for new on-road heavy-duty vehicles and engines of the 2014 and later model years and to align with U.S. standards. The development of common North American standards provides a level playing field that leads North American manufacturers to produce more advanced vehicles at a lower compliance cost.

Pursuant to CEPA 1999, the current Regulations apply to companies manufacturing and importing new on-road heavy-duty vehicles and engines of the 2014 and later model years for the purpose of sale in Canada. They apply to the whole range of new on-road heavy-duty vehicles, from full-size pick-up trucks and vans to tractors and buses, as well as a wide variety of vocational vehicles such as freight, delivery, service, cement, and dump trucks. The current Regulations also include provisions that establish compliance flexibilities which include a system for generating, banking and trading CO2 emission credits, as well as flexibilities for advanced and innovative technologies to reduce GHG emissions. Flexibilities for advanced technologies include incentives in the form of additional CO2 emission credits for hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles and Rankine-cycle engines. Companies are also required to submit annual reports and maintain records relating to the GHG emission performance of their heavy-duty vehicles and fleets. The current Regulations are estimated to result in a reduction of approximately 19.1 megatonnes (Mt) of CO2 equivalent in GHG emissions and net benefits of $4.5 billion over the lifetime operation of vehicles produced in the 2014–2018 model year cohort. It is also estimated that the current Regulations will achieve GHG emissions reduction of 3 Mt of CO2 equivalent per year by 2020 relative to a business-as-usual scenario, therefore contributing toward Canada’s commitment in the Copenhagen Accord.

Building on the success of the joint work with the United States on the development and implementation of GHG emission standards for passenger automobiles and light trucks, Environment Canada has conducted aerodynamic testing and research with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), as well as emissions testing to support the development of common standards for heavy-duty vehicles. This collaboration is taking place under the Canada–United States Air Quality Committee.

As with the development of the current Regulations, Environment Canada is committed to continuing to work closely with the U.S. EPA to maintain a common Canada–United States approach to regulating GHG emissions for post-2018 model year vehicles and engines. This approach will build on the long history of regulatory alignment between the two countries on vehicle emissions pursuant to the Canada–United States Air Quality Agreement. Continuing to take an integrated systems approach to vehicles and engines is critical to maximizing future reductions in GHG emissions. In addition to providing important benefits to the health of Canadians and the environment, common Canada–United States standards will help preserve the competitiveness of the Canadian industry, provide regulatory certainty to industry, and lower the compliance costs and administrative burden for Canadian companies, which will ultimately benefit consumers.

In addition, the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) established a federal, provincial and territorial working group on transportation emissions, and developed an action plan to reduce emissions from the transportation sector. Environment Canada will use this CCME working group as a means of communicating with the provincial and territorial governments on the development of heavy-duty vehicle GHG regulations for post-2018 model years.

Next steps

The Minister of the Environment intends to initiate a process to amend the current Regulations under CEPA 1999 to further limit emissions of greenhouse gases from new on-road heavy-duty vehicles and their engines for post-2018 model years. This process will include consultations with representatives of provincial and territorial governments, industry, non-governmental organizations, the public and other key stakeholders. Input received during these consultations will be considered during the development of the proposed regulations that will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part I. A statutory consultation period will follow publication in the Canada Gazette, Part I, during which interested parties will have an opportunity to make written comments to inform the development of the final regulations that will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part II.

Environment Canada will also continue to work closely with the U.S. EPA towards the continued implementation of common national standards to reduce GHG emissions from on-road heavy-duty vehicles and their engines.

As a first step in the consultation process, interested parties may submit comments on the general approach set out above by mail or email before November 12, 2014, to
