Participate In B.C.’s Carbon Pricing Review

The Community Social Planning Council of Greater Victoria is supporting B.C.’s Carbon Pricing Review with community sessions for equity-seeking groups.

These sessions will provide:

  • An update on the federal government’s minimum carbon price for all provinces and territories and BC’s plans to meet or exceed that.
  • Information on provincial carbon pricing, and
  • An opportunity to explore:
    • The different impacts of the carbon tax for diverse community members, especially those with low incomes
    • How carbon tax programs can be designed to help address fairness and affordability
    • What are some of the challenges that need to be looked at and how can we make carbon tax programs more accessible?

Feedback from engagement sessions will inform the provincial government’s review of the carbon tax, which aims to understand impacts of carbon pricing on affordability for households and businesses.

Capacity Funding of $21 per hour will be provided to low-income individuals; time commitment is 1.5 hours. Participants can opt-in to capacity funding upon registration.

There are four different engagement themes offered to organization representatives and community members. Please register for the one that most reflects your perspective. The session schedule and registration links are located below.
