Canada to attend upcoming UN Climate Change Conference (COP27)

November 4, 2022

Led by the Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, a Canadian delegation will be heading to Egypt from November 6-18, 2022 to participate in the UN Climate Change Conference (COP27). Along with 190 other countries, Canada will be engaging in discussions and negotiations around climate change including issues related to climate finance and adaptation.

In order to meet the Paris Agreement, Canada is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40-45% below 2005 levels by 2030 and released a 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan in March 2022. To highlight these commitments and Canadian innovations, such as low-carbon businesses and clean technologies, Canada will also have a national Pavilion at COP27 which will act as a venue for further stakeholder discussions.

Following COP27, Canada is also hosting the United Nations Biodiversity Conference (COP15) in Montreal from December 7-19, 2022. RCC will be monitoring the proceedings and preparing updates for members.
