Canada is blessed with a stunning variety of landscapes, seascapes, flora and fauna. Our spectacular scenery – and the many species that make their homes in our midst – is a source of great pleasure and pride.
We value the health of these natural environments, and recognize that our social and economic well-being depends on their sustainability.
