About The Report:
Canada has a serious methane problem. Newly published research shows that methane emissions from Canada’s oil and gas sector – due to both venting of methane as part of normal operation, and leaks from equipment – are higher than previously thought.
Fortunately, this problem can be fixed. Evidence shows that methane can be cost-effectively reduced and eliminated by 2030 if the federal government enacts smart regulations to end methane leaks and venting. Our report, Canada’s Methane Gas Problem: Why strong regulations can reduce pollution, protect health and save money, makes a series of recommendations about what these regulations should look like.

Infrared cameras reveal what can’t be seen by the naked eye – continual methane leaks from oil and gas equipment. Watch this video to see these harmful and wasteful leaks.
Methane is a potent short-term greenhouse gas that is hazardous to the climate and to human health. Canada’s oil and gas industry is pressuring the federal government to hold back methane regulations until 2023, even though reducing methane is cost-effective.
We can’t wait six more years. Tell Canada now’s the time to regulate harmful methane emissions from the oil and gas industry.
