About the OCAA

The Ontario Clean Air Alliance led the successful campaign to phase-out Ontario’s five dirty coal-fired power plants. We are now working to move Ontario towards a 100% renewable energy future through an integrated combination of energy conservation and efficiency, cost-effective Made-in-Ontario green energy, and energy cooperation with Hydro Quebec.

The phase out of coal power eliminated Ontario’s largest single source of greenhouse gas emissions, and smog builders like sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. It also eliminated a massive source of dangerous particulate matter, which can damage hearts and lungs, and toxins, including mercury, cadmium and lead.

Now the OCAA is building on its coal-phase out success by working to move Ontario to a 100% renewable future. An important component of this work is pushing Ontario to become a leader in using energy efficiently. Our goal is to see Ontario become one of ten most energy efficient provinces or states in North America.

We are also calling for Ontario to sign a long-term deal to import low-cost water power from Quebec. Such a deal would have great advantages for Ontario compared to high-cost nuclear, including providing energy storage for the province’s growing green supply generation and allowing us to cost-effectively “electrify” transportation and buildings.
