The Green Party of Canada (GPC) has policy proposals for the full gamut of economic, environmental, social and governance issues that are of concern to Canadians, including, for example:
- Guaranteed Livable Income (2008)
- Declare a climate emergency, and to mobilize our
economic, political, and social resources (2014)
- Advancing the Equality of LGBTQ+ Canadians (2016)
- Repeal the Indian Act (2018)
- Government Divestment from Fossil Fuels (2018)
Policies are developed and updated through a grassroots process culminating in a vote of approval by party members.
The aspirations of the policies are summarized in Our Vision.
During elections, Green Party campaign platforms are derived from the policies. The Election platform 2019 is the most recent example. The platform’s proposals were fully costed and reviewed by the Parliamentary Budget Office.
Vision Green 2020 is a comprehensive compilation of issues and what Green MPs will do to address them, based on Green Party policies, as of January 2020. An excerpt:
- “Vision Green presents a well-researched analysis of critical economic, environmental, and social challenges facing Canadians from coast to coast to coast. In this document, we present practical solutions that can be achieved if there is the political will and leadership to take forward-looking action. It was developed by our Green Cabinet and was informed by experts, activists and citizens who participated in policy workshops held across Canada. Our vision is based on policies approved by the membership of the Green Party.
Our solutions are realistic because they follow ‘best practices’ already in place in parts of Canada and around the world. These practices are cost-effective, deliver results, and benefit people, the economy, and the environment.”
Mission: Possible is the Green Climate Action Plan, developed before the 2019 election, for Canada to do its part in preventing catastrophic climate change. It is supported by a detailed analysis of Projections, 2020-2050.
