Is the federal government protecting Canada’s national heritage? Fall 2013 Report of the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development

11/20/2013

Earlier this month, the Report of the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development (the “Report”) was released.   This Report is the first issued since the departure of Scott Vaughn from his role as Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development last year.

The Report focuses on two themes: the protection of nature and sustainable development.  In examining these themes, the Report looks at:

  • goals of the International Convention for Biological Diversity;
  • conservation of migratory birds;
  • protected areas for wildlife;
  • funding programs for species at risk;
  • recovery planning for species at risk;
  • ecological integrity in national parks; and
  • federal and departmental sustainable strategies.

As usual, the Report also includes a review of environmental petitions over the audit period.
