The 2030 Plan for a Green Economy (2030 PGE) is the result of a process carried out with various actors within Québec society and the people of Québec.

Civil society working groups

Five working groups were formed to work on the Plan’s development, bringing together representatives from more than 75 organizations as well as experts. The groups were asked to propose effective measures to guide the government’s actions in their respective areas:

The last group, composed entirely of young people, was formed to provide the perspective of this generation, which is directly affected by climate issues. A member of the group participated in the work of the other groups.

Working group coordinators also provided additional input (PDF 1.33 Mb) (in French) into the winning conditions and shared principles emerging from their five reports.

Ministerial tour of the regions

Minister Benoit Charette and his colleagues, Ministers Jonatan Julien, Marie-Eve Proulx and Pierre Fitzgibbon carried out a consultation tour from August 27 to October 15, 2019. The tour, which stopped in 13 cities and covered Québec’s 17 administrative regions, provided an opportunity to better understand the needs in the regions.

The tour was also an occasion to learn about inspiring solutions and projects of organizations, businesses and municipalities across Québec that could serve as examples.

Work within the Québec government

A large number of Québec government departments and agencies are involved in the climate transition. They contribute to the fight against climate change through their policies, strategies, action plans, regulations and programs.

The Ministère de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques oversaw interdepartmental work to ensure that the Plan is aligned with various policies already in place in the departments and agencies concerned.
