Federal Sustainable Development Strategy
The Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS) provides Canadians with Government of Canada sustainable development priorities, establishes goals and targets, and highlights government actions from 41 federal organizations over the next three years.

With 13 aspirational goals for a more sustainable Canada, the 2016–2019 FSDS demonstrates federal leadership on climate change, and includes the environment-related 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, measurable and ambitious targets, and the role that partners play.
