Canada May Match U.S. Emissions Rules

Canadian officials have proposed regulations that would align greenhouse gas emissions standards for trucks in that country with those published last year by the United States government.

As in the U.S., Canada’s emissions limits for trucks ranging in size from pickups and buses to heavy-duty trucks would phase in starting in model year 2014, ratcheting up to model year 2018.

The rules aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from heavy-duty vehicles by up to 23% in 2018 compared with 2010 levels, Canada’s environmental agency said in a statement.

 “Canada and the United States have a deeply integrated automotive industry and there are significant environmental and economic benefits to aligning our emission standards for new on-road heavy-duty vehicles,” Environment Minister Peter Kent said in a statement announcing the proposal.
