Contribution to the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy

The 2013-16 Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS), tabled on November 4, 2013, guides the Government of Canada’s 2013-16 sustainable development activities. The FSDS articulates Canada’s federal sustainable development priorities for a period of three years, as required by the Federal Sustainable Development Act (FSDA).

The Department contributes to the following Federal Sustainable Development Strategy themes as denoted by the visual identifiers and associated programs shown below.

Protecting Nature and Canadians

Shrinking the Environmental Footprint Beginning with Government

Fisheries and Oceans Canada ensures that consideration of these outcomes is an integral part of its decision-making processes. In particular, through the federal Strategic Environmental Assessment process, any new policy, plan, or program initiative includes an analysis of its impact on attaining the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy goals and targets. The results of Strategic Environmental Assessments are made public when an initiative is announced, demonstrating the Department's commitment to achieving the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy goals and targets.
