2014–2015 Departmental Sustainable Development Strategy

Section 1: Overview of the Federal Government’s Approach to Sustainable Development

The 2013–16 Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS), tabled on November 4, 2013, guides the Government of Canada’s 2013–16 sustainable development activities. The FSDS articulates Canada’s federal sustainable development priorities for a period of three years, as required by the Federal Sustainable Development Act (FSDA). The purpose of the FSDA is to provide the legal framework for developing and implementing a federal sustainable development strategy that will make environmental decision making more transparent and accountable to Parliament. Environment Canada supports the implementation of the FSDS through the activities found in this departmental strategy.
