OTTAWA—Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer delivered a climate change plan with no targets for emissions reductions Wednesday, focusing on tax credits and research investments instead of a national carbon price.

The Conservatives claim their plan will give Canada its "best chance" at reaching the Paris climate agreement targets by 2030, but provided no details on how much they expect their plan to reduce emissions.

Under the Conservative plan, companies will still be forced to pay for their pollution, but consumers will not pay a fuel levy directly at the cash register or gas pump as they do under the federal carbon price.
