This paper presents a new general equilibrium model, CIGMa (Canadian Intertemporal General equilibrium Model) designed to analyse the economic impact of greenhouse gas (GHG) abatement measures in Canada. We use the model to examine the so-called ‘reference policy package’ devised by the government to achieve Kyoto objectives in Canada. Although the reference policy package is different from the Canadian official climate change plan, they use both the same set of policy instruments. Given its specification, CIGMa is particularly well suited for the analysis of a peculiar feature of the reference policy package, which is the output-based emissions trading scheme. We assess the short- and long-run aggregate and sectoral impacts of the reference policy package in two different labour market settings, i.e., with and without wage rigidities. Ce texte documente un nouveau modèle d’équilibre général, MCEGI (Modèle canadien d’équilibre général inter-temporel), conçu pour analyser l’impact économique des mesures de réduction des gaz à effet de serre (GES) au Canada. Nous utilisons le modèle pour évaluer le ‘plan de référence’ suggéré par le gouvernement pour atteindre les objectifs de Kyoto au Canada. Bien que le plan de référence soit différent du plan officiel du Canada sur les changements climatiques, il utilise les mêmes instruments que ce dernier. La spécification de MCEGI permet de bien prendre en compte une des particularités importantes du plan de référence qu’est l’utilisation d’un système de permis échangeables avec allocation basée sur la production. Nous évaluons les impacts agrégés et sectoriels à court et long termes du plan de référence en présence et en l’absence de rigidité salariale sur le marché du travail.
