Canada takes action on the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development
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 positively shape how societies of tomorrow grow and develop sustainably and inclusively to the shared benefit of all.
17 goals to leave no one behind
We are working with our partners to advance the 2030 Agenda at home and abroad through concrete actions on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
How we are taking action
We heard from Canadians on the development of a whole-of-society National Strategy for the advancement of the Sustainable Development Goals in Canada.
We are monitoring Canada’s progress on the Sustainable Development Goals through statistics and metrics.
We are reporting on Canada’s progress and actions to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at home and abroad.
