Canadian CCS Policy Update

The Knowledge Centre was active leading up to and following the release of the Government of Canada’s 2023 budget this spring, which included several important measures to support the development of large-scale CCS/CCUS projects. Prior to the budget’s release on March 28, a column by CEO James Millar ran in the Financial Post outlining the importance of CCS to the country’s economic and environmental sustainability.

On budget day, the Knowledge Centre issued a statement in support of the government’s work to implement the investment tax credit for CCUS (CCUS-ITC) and commitment to providing greater certainty on carbon pricing for project developers, but also expressed concern about the gaps that put Canadian firms at a disadvantage relative to peers in other countries.

This was followed on April 18 with the release of a comprehensive ‘primer’ on the budget that includes a detailed break-down of the proposed CCUS-ITC that is expected to be in place by October, following further public consultation.

Following the budget release, the federal government began seeking feedback on its proposed requirements for public knowledge sharing under the CCUS-ITC. The assist organizations in providing input to Natural Resources Canada by May 31, the Knowledge Centre produced a consultation document that contains key messages and background information about the draft requirements
