The Western Climate Initiative is a collaboration among states and provinces to tackle climate change at a regional level.
A group of Western states and Canadian provinces collaborated in the development of the 2008 Design Recommendations for the WCI Regional Cap and Trade Program and the 2010 Design for the WCI Regional Program, which provides a roadmap to inform the WCI Partner jurisdictions as they implement the cap-and-trade program in their jurisdictions.
British Columbia, California, Ontario, Quebec and Manitoba are continuing to work together through the Western Climate Initiative to develop and harmonize their emissions trading program policies. For more information, see the Western Climate Initiative website.
