National and Provincial/Territorial Greenhouse Gas Emission Tables

These datasets are annexes to the “National Inventory Report 1990-2014: Greenhouse Gas Sources and Sinks in Canada” (NIR) which summarize Canada's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at the national and provincial/territorial levels by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sectors, as well as by Canadian Economic Sectors. Electricity intensity values are also provided at a national level, as well as by province/territory. In addition, detailed unrounded emission estimates by IPCC Sector not published in the NIR are also provided here.

Gases for which emissions are estimated include carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFC), perfluorocarbons (PFC), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3).

For emissions by IPCC Sector, estimates presented in the NIR are available in rounded and unrounded format. Annex 8 of Canada’s NIR provides more information on the approach to rounding.

Note that to account for the creation of Nunavut in 1999, data for years preceding 1999 show Nunavut and Northwest Territories as a combined region.
