Summary: 

This report, released by a coalition of leading Canadian environmental organizations, measures the federal government’s progress toward meeting its platform and mandate commitments on environmental issues across the country.

The report assesses on-the-ground accomplishments against commitments on seven key issue areas: climate change, biodiversity and habitat conservation, environmental assessments, water, Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) reform, charitable regulatory frameworks, and participation of civil society in public policy. As the report notes, there has been good progress on a few issues, but serious gaps remain in many of the areas assessed.
