The Regulations Amending the Ozone-depleting Substances and Halocarbon Alternatives Regulations (amendments) aim to reduce the supply of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) that enter into Canada and the demand for HFCs in manufactured products, thereby averting future HFC releases to the environment. This will reduce Canadian GHG emissions, in order to help limit increases in global average temperatures and contribute to Canada’s international obligations to combat climate change.
