Canada takes action on the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals

Agenda 2030

In September 2015, Canada and all other 192 United Nations Member States adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the UN General Assembly. This initiative is a global call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

The 2030 Agenda presents Canada, and the world, with a historic opportunity to shape how societies of tomorrow grow sustainably and inclusively to the shared benefit of all.

17 goals to leave no one behind

We are working with our partners and stakeholders to advance the 2030 Agenda at home and abroad through concrete actions on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

How we are taking action

The strategy promotes a whole-of-society effort to achieving the SDGs. It also sets out a national vision to help build the world envisioned in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
