The Transition Accelerator is aimed at delivering major, scalable, system transitions to harness social and economic disruption, while solving for climate change. Our work identifies and advances only those transitions that are compelling, capable, and credible.
The Accelerator will advance transformative system change to build a clean and prosperous economy while addressing climate change. To achieve this, we are building a hydrogen economy, advancing economy-wide electrification, improving Canada’s agri-food sector, and directing personal mobility.
Our initial priorities are:
