CNW (April 10, 2017) reports that Canada has a high potential to host a strong green bond market beyond the CAD 4.5 billion issued to date in the country. Research by Corporate Knights demonstrates that Canada’s capacity for green bond issues will be at least CAD 56.3 billion in fiscal year 2017/18. The government will also have a critical role to play in the early days of market development by continuing to issue public green bonds and by other means of support.
