Managing Science and Technology

Environment Canada's S&T is managed to achieve scientific excellence, develop federal S&T policies, and ensure the effectiveness of policy implementation. Strategic management also improves integration of science with partners in other federal departments and collaboration with science partners outside the Department including the academic or private sectors.

Environment Canada's Science Strategy

Science Strategy report cover Environment Canada’s Science Strategy 2014-2019 is a major milestone for the Department, as it represents a truly department-wide strategy for Environment Canada’s science. The Strategy sets out a vision, mission and principles that represent common goals across the entire Department to better integrate science into the decision-making process and delivery of the Departmental mandate.

Measuring Environment Canada's Research and Development Performance

Report cover Measuring Environment Canada's Research and Development Performance (2014)

Science is the foundation of Environment Canada’s work. Research and development (R&D) supports many of the Department’s science-based functions, including its legislative obligations, commitment to be a world class regulator, enforcement activities, weather services and policy development. R&D is an integral component of the Department’s science; as such, regular assessment is important.

The objective of this report is to provide an updated assessment of Environment Canada’s R&D performance. The report establishes baseline measures of R&D performance according to the principles of Environment Canada’s Science Strategy 2014-2019: Relevance, Transparency, Responsiveness, Excellence and Collaboration. Where possible, the report compares current and past performance, as assessed in the 2009 report Measuring Environment Canada’s Research and Development Performance.

Environment Canada’s Science Horizons Youth Internship Program

Environment Canada's Science Horizons Program is a collaborative effort with Canadian universities, the private sector and other non-government organizations which offer promising young scientists and post-secondary graduates hands-on experience working on environmental projects under the mentorship and coaching of experienced scientists and program managers. Read more about the program.
