Climate Policy in Canada *speaker series*

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I am invovled in organizing a series of speakers on Climate Change and thought that I would post the open events here in case anyone would like to attend. Here is the invite we sent out.

Sustainable Prosperity will be hosting an event at the University of Ottawa with Prof. Mark Jaccard, from the School of Resource and Environmental Management, Simon Fraser University, on November 26th, 2010.

He will speak on the topic of “Climate Policy in Canada: Issues in Regional Impacts and US Coordination†followed by discussion. His talk will build on his forthcoming C.D. Howe Institute paper “Regional impact of climate policy in Canada,†(to be released November 25th, 2010). The paper uses economic modelling to address the question of what is the link between different designs of carbon pricing and different regional impacts.

Location: University of Ottawa, 55 Laurier Avenue East, Room 4101, Desmarais Building, Ottawa, ON. For building location and parking see http://www.uottawa.ca/maps/

Date & Time: Friday, November 26th, 2010. 12:00-1:30 pm. Drinks and light snacks will be served.

Please RSVP to sarah@sustainableprosperity.ca by November 23rd, 2010. The event is open to all, but we ask that you RSVP to confirm a space.

We hope to see you there.
