Between 1997 and 2008, federal departments and agencies were required, under the Auditor General Act, to produce sustainable development strategies and to update them every three years.
New requirements following the June 2008 passage of the Federal Sustainable Development Act have led to a re-examination of the government-wide SDS approach by Environment Canada. It is anticipated that a 12 month review period will be required prior to Environment Canada’s release of the process for the development and implementation of a Federal Sustainable Development Strategy. Public Safety Canada will continue to pursue its current strategy and will align itself to the new Federal Strategy when it becomes available.
