Agreements

Environment Canada is party to a wide range of environmental agreements, both voluntary and regulated.

The Department enters into agreements with provincial or territorial governments to streamline the administration and management of environmental regulations. It also makes agreements with individual companies and industry sectors to ensure that they achieve certain levels of environmental performance.

Environment Canada’s international agreements are negotiated on the basis of positions developed through consultations with provincial, territorial and Aboriginal governments and with Canadian stakeholders.
