In order to achieve a Hamiltonian-based canonical derivation of the Hawking effect, one usually faces multiple hurdles. Firstly, the spacetime foliation using Schwarzschild time does not lead to hyper-surfaces which are always spacelike. Secondly, the null coordinates which are frequently used in covariant approach, do not lead to a true matter Hamiltonian. Recently, an exact canonical derivation was presented using the so-called near-null coordinates. However, there too one faces the difficulty of having to deal with non-vanishing matter diffeomorphism generator as the spatial decomposition involves a non-zero shift vector. Here we introduce a new set of coordinates which allows one to perform an exact canonical derivation of Hawking effect without having to deal with matter diffeomorphism generator.
