As immediate relief of COVID-19 is a top priority for Canadian governments, the topic of economic recovery is seemingly in the spotlight, Clean Energy Canada and the Canada Cleantech Alliance have recently launched a Resilient Recovery collaborative campaign which asks for support in the form of signatures. This campaign is asking for commitment from Canadian governments for a three-part recovery and resilience plan, which entails: 1. Invest stimulus into Canada’s fast-growing clean energy and cleantech sectors and the local production and export of world-leading low- and zero-carbon commodities; 2. Act quickly to support clean energy and cleantech solutions and businesses by expanding existing initiatives and programs; and 3. Share loud and clear that Canada will continue and expand on its best-in-class climate and environmental policies. CBA has signed on as a supporter and encourages members to do the same and join the 285 signatories representing 2,114 companies.
CBA has published the 2020-2021 Business Plan based on input from the Board of Directors Strategic Meetings in April.
