❯❯WHO WE ARE
The Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA) is a national trade association that represents approximately 650 solar energy companies throughout Canada. Since 1992, CanSIA has worked collaboratively with the Government of Canada, municipalities, provinces and territories to develop a strong, efficient, ethical and professional Canadian solar energy industry with capacity to provide innovative solar energy solutions and to play a major role in the global transition to a sustainable, clean-energy future.
❯❯WHAT WE SEE
By 2025, solar energy is widely deployed throughout Canada, having already achieved market competitiveness that removes the need for government incentives, and is recognized as an established component of Canada’s energy mix. The solar industry will be supporting more than 35,000 jobs in the economy and displacing 15 to 31 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year, providing a safer, cleaner environment for generations to come.
