Joint Auctions

Background

On January 1, 2014, the California Cap-and-Trade Program and Québec Cap-and-Trade System officially linked, which enabled mutual acceptance of compliance instruments issued by each jurisdiction, and the jurisdictions to hold joint auctions of greenhouse gas (GHG) allowances. 

As part of California’s Cap-and-Trade Program and the Québec Cap-and-Trade System, the California Air Resources Board (ARB) and Québec’s ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques (Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight against Climate Change) (MDDELCC) will hold joint GHG allowance auctions to allow market participants to acquire GHG allowances.  

The first joint GHG allowance auction was held in November 2014.  The next joint auction is scheduled for February 2015.  Auction notices are posted to the jurisdiction websites 60 days prior to each auction, as called for in the California Cap-and-Trade Program Regulation (California Regulation) and the Government of Québec Regulation respecting a cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gas emission allowances (Québec Regulation).
