National Inventory Report, 1990-2012 - Greenhouse Gas Sources and Sinks in Canada

Canada is required on an annual basis to prepare and submit a national inventory of human induced greenhouse gas emissions from sources (e.g. fuel combustion, industrial processes) and removals by sinks (e.g. growing plants and trees) in the form of a National Inventory Report and a set of Common Reporting Format tables.  See the National Inventory Report 1990-2012.
