    The 2019 to 2022 Federal Sustainable Development Strategy sets out our plan for a clean economy, healthy ecosystems and a better quality of life for Canadians. But we can’t achieve sustainable development alone—we need you. We want to hear about your plan to make your own community more sustainable!

    That’s why we are introducing a new Commitments Board for Canadians to join us in taking action for the environment and sustainable development.

    Post your commitment today to motivate others and keep yourself on track!

    On June 19th, 2019, we tabled the 2019 to 2022 Federal Sustainable Development Strategy, Canada’s fourth. Drawing on input and ideas from Canadians across the country, the strategy sets out what we will do over the next 3 years for a greener Canada and a better quality of life for Canadians.

    Your feedback helped us strengthen the FSDS. To respond to public comments, we have:

    • strengthened our targets to ensure they are specific and are supported by indicators
    • added new targets in areas such as zero-emission vehicle sales and growing Canada’s clean technology exports
    • revised the strategy’s Sustainable Food chapter to reflect efforts to promote an innovative and competitive agri-food sector and help Canadians make healthy food choices
    • expanded our suite of performance measures and clarified linkages between targets, indicators and action plans

    While our strategy is now in place, we still want to hear from you about your sustainable development priorities and particularly what you’re doing for a more sustainable Canada. We look forward to continuing the conversation as we implement our strategy.


  • Thank you, Canada
