CAPE: Healthy Recovery Plan For a Safe and Sustainable Future

Recently, organizations representing 40 million healthcare workers worldwide -- two-thirds of the global workforce -- supported an open letter addressed to G20 leaders, calling upon them to create a green and healthy recovery in order to support people through COVID-19 and its economic fallout, and prevent further crises related to climate change and planetary decline. This report represents a Made-in-Canada set of recommendations based on this call to action.

In this report, we outline many potential human health co-benefits of climate action. This
report specifically illustrates and quantifies potential health benefits related to improved air
quality in Canada of actions and investments resulting from one potential path to Canada
meeting its 2030 emissions pledge and then its 2050 net-zero target.
