    • 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

  • Thank you, Canada
