Environment and Climate Change Canada
Government of Canada
The FSDS sets out the Government of Canada’s environmental sustainability priorities, establishes goals and targets, and identifies actions to achieve them. It outlines what we’ll do across government to promote clean growth, ensure healthy ecosystems and build safe, secure and sustainable communities over a 3-year period.
This strategy sets out 13 aspirational goals that reflect the Canada we want, supported by medium-term targets, short-term milestones, and clear action plans. It also includes crosscutting priorities that will support progress in all areas of the strategy including: supporting international agreements and initiatives, including the 2030 Agenda, supporting informed and sustainable decision making across government, implementing strong environmental legislation and ensuring robust and thorough environmental assessments, working in partnership with Indigenous peoples and communities, maintaining an ongoing conversation with partners,
stakeholders and Canadians on sustainable development.
Our strategy supports Canada’s international sustainability commitments, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Additionally, it reflects key government initiatives including our support for the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change and other actions to transition Canada to a low-carbon economy.
