Taking Climate Leadership
We’ll cut fossil fuel subsidies and reinvest that money to protect good jobs for people, move to carbon-free electricity, and make our homes, workplaces and transportation more energy efficient. Our plan to create over 300,000 good jobs will cut emissions in line with what science says is necessary to confront the climate emergency, while bringing reliable work to communities all across the country.

Min Sook Lee is endorsed by Our Time as a Green New Deal Champion.
We can ease the housing crisis by building 500,000 new affordable homes in 10 years and tackling skyrocketing housing prices. We’ll get co-op, social and non-profit housing projects off the ground and provide relief right now with up to $5,000 per year in rental benefits for families struggling to afford their rent.
We can expand medicare so people are covered from head-to-toe – including pharmacare in 2020 that covers everyone.
Quality, Affordable Child Care
Despite decades of promises, families across Canada are still struggling to find quality, affordable child care. We’ll invest in child care right away to make sure no one has to choose between having kids and having a career.
Upholding Indigenous Rights
In partnership with Indigenous peoples, we’re committed to fully implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, co-developing a National Action Plan for Reconciliation and doing our part to respect and advance Indigenous rights. We’ll end discrimination against Indigenous children, and fund education, clean water and restorative justice.
We can ask the ultra-rich to pay a little bit more by introducing a 1% tax on wealth over $20 million – and reinvest that money in the services Canadians need. We'll also close tax loopholes and strengthen enforcement to crack down on tax evaders.
We’re fighting to make sure everyone can access education and opportunity without ending up with a mountain of debt. A person’s economic status should not be a barrier to higher education.
