Today, the Ontario Court of Appeal released its decision confirming that the federal Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act (the "GGPPA" or the "Act") is constitutional. This is the second appellate court decision to uphold this Act. The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal concluded the GGPPA is constitutional earlier this year.
On April 1, 2019, the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act came into force in Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario and Saskatchewan, and it will come into force on July 1, 2019 for each of Nunavut and the Yukon.
