The Canadian government has adopted the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, which sets targets for the phase down of HFCs for all countries through the year 2047. To accomplish this, Canada will do the following:
- Control the amount of HFCs available for use through the phase-down of bulk HFCs
- Introduce controls on specific products containing HFCs, including air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment, foams and aerosols
Specific to the controls on HFCs used in commercial refrigeration equipment, the following restrictions will begin in Canada in January 2020.
