Public Statements

The Cabinet Directive on the Environmental Assessment of Policy, Plan and Program Proposals requires that departments and agencies prepare a public statement of environmental effects, including impacts on the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy’s goals and targets, when a Strategic Environmental Assessment has been conducted for a policy, plan or program that is approved or announced. Public statements assure stakeholders and the public that environmental factors have been appropriately considered when decisions are made. Links to public statements prepared for Environment Canada-led proposals can be found below.
