This paper provides a comparison of the coverage of Canadian carbon pricing systems (defining coverage as the proportion and types of emissions priced under the various systems), by emissions source. It compares provincially announced pricing systems to the federal benchmark (the minimum coverage provinces must meet) and the federal backstop, the pricing system that will be imposed on provinces with insufficient coverage or who opt to not develop their own policies.
