Canadian Cities Emissions (2009)

Between 1997 and 2009, households in Edmonton and Calgary generated, on average, almost four times the amount of CO2 as their counterparts in Montreal, according to a 2016 study by the University of British Columbia.

The study from the university's faculty of land and food systems estimated average household emissions in major cities across Canada between 1997 and 2009, based on factors such as weather, population density and the type of energy used for home heating and electricity.
