Start date of the horizontal initiative

2018-19

End date of the horizontal initiative

2022-23

Description of the horizontal initiative

Natural spaces will be protected by establishing and expanding protected areas, managing them to high standards, and linking them onto a well-connected network of protected lands, inland water and coastal and marine areas. Species will be conserved by developing and implementing, in collaboration with partners, protection and recovery measures for priority species, in priority areas, and to address risks; and the rights and responsibilities of Indigenous peoples in conserving species and spaces will be respected and supported.

Governance structures

A senior management committee (Senior Oversight Committee) will be established at the ADM level with representation from ECCC, PCA, DFO and NRCan to guide the initiative, address any issues, and overcome any roadblocks that become apparent.

The Committee will be chaired by ECCC, and will be established for the duration of the Nature Legacy. The Committee will meet at least once a year to consider a status report on the implementation of the Nature Legacy for Canada.

Planning highlights

We will continue to make progress toward conserving 17% of Canada’s lands and inland waters and 10% of coastal and marine areas by the end of 2020. Additionally, we will continue to expand and manage our Migratory Bird Sanctuaries and National Wildlife Areas. The Indigenous Guardians program will support Indigenous Peoples and create partnerships in conservation efforts. Together with this program, the $500 million Canada Nature Fund will support Indigenous organizations, non-profits, provinces and territories and others to protect and conserve Canada’s terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, landscapes and biodiversity, including species at risk. This Fund will be matched by philanthropic foundations, corporate, not-for-profit, provincial, territorial and other partners to raise a total of $1 billion for conservation action and lead to the establishment of more provincial, territorial, Indigenous, and municipal protected and conserved areas, as well as private lands, across the country. 

Federal, Provincial and Territorial governments have agreed to transform the way we conserve species at risk by shifting to more ecosystem-based, multispecies approaches, focussing on a national set of shared priority places, species and sectors along with place-based conservation initiatives to deliver on the ground action. Collaborative work will continue to advance the protection and recovery of Canada’s Boreal and Southern Mountain Caribou herds, amongst other priority species at risk.

Addressing Air Pollution (AAP)

Lead department(s)

Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC)

Federal partner organization(s)

Health Canada, National Research Council of Canada

Non federal and non governmental partner(s)

The implementation of the Air Quality Management System (AQMS) is a federally led collaborative process with provinces and territories, with involvement of and in consultation with Indigenous peoples, health and environmental non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and industry.

Start date of the horizontal initiative

April 1, 2016

This initiative is a continuation of previous work conducted under the Clean Air Regulatory Agenda (CARA) which was in place from 2006-07 to 2015-16.

Current investments include funding provided in Budget 2016. Budget 2017 approved additional funding for this initiative starting in April 2018.

End date of the horizontal initiative

This initiative is ongoing, and funded through two budget submissions. Budget 2016 provided funding for the science and reporting activities for five years and ongoing, and provided funding for policy and analysis, mitigation actions, and indoor air quality activities for two years (2016–17 to 2017–18).

For 2018-19, Budget 2017 provided funding for policy and analysis activities for four years and ongoing. It also provided funding for mitigation activities for outdoor and indoor air quality for four years and ongoing.

Description of the horizontal initiative

Air pollution threatens the health of Canadians, degrades the environment, and can reduce economic productivity. It is linked with increased incidences of stroke, heart disease and acute respiratory diseases, and it exacerbates conditions such as asthma and diabetes, with subsequent increases in hospital admissions, emergency room visits and premature mortality. Outdoor air pollution also affects wildlife, ecosystems and vegetation, structures, and leads to reduced visibility. Indoor air pollution exposure is of particular concern given Canadians spend approximately 90% of their time indoors.

This initiative aims to improve air quality and health in Canada, and provide Canadians with the tools to make informed decisions to reduce their exposure to indoor and outdoor air pollutants. Activities to be undertaken include:

  1. Scientific and reporting activities to provide the foundation for credible, relevant and timely policy and regulation development, administration, and enforcement; and to provide air quality information to Canadians.
  2. Policy and analysis activities to provide the strategic advice and economic and health benefit analysis necessary to develop effective policy and regulatory measures; to continue to work with provinces, territories and other stakeholders to address domestic air pollution, and to continue working with the U.S. under the bilateral Air Quality Agreement and with other countries in international fora such as the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution to reduce transboundary sources of air pollution.
  3. Mitigation actions for outdoor air quality include developing and implementing new regulatory and non-regulatory instruments to reduce emissions from industrial, transportation and consumer products sectors and equipment types, and continuing to administer and update existing instruments.
  4. Mitigation actions for indoor air quality include communication and outreach activities through HC’s and NRC’s indoor air quality programs to inform Canadians of the health risks of indoor air pollution and to encourage personal actions to reduce these risks in homes and buildings, including at schools and workplaces.

Governance structures

ECCC provides overall program coordination. Officials responsible for key program components from participating departments meet as required to discuss overarching issues and key decisions.

End date of the horizontal initiative

The majority of CGCC initiatives have received funding until March 31, 2028, and a smaller portion will receive ongoing funding beyond 2028. Other funds like LCEF will end by 2021-22.

Description of the horizontal initiative

The Government of Canada recognizes the real and critical impacts of climate change. In 2016, the Government of Canada worked with provinces and territories, and engaged with Indigenous People, to develop the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change, Canada’s plan to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, build Canada’s resilience to a changing climate, and drive clean growth. This plan puts Canada on a path to meet its target of reducing GHG emissions by 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.

The Government of Canada has been implementing the PCF since its adoption. This involves a number of horizontal initiatives, including measures to achieve reductions across all sectors of the economy, initiatives to advance climate change adaptation and build resilience to climate impacts across Canada and drive innovation and growth by increasing clean technology development and adoption, and a pan-Canadian approach to pricing carbon pollution.

Governance structures

ECCC provides overall coordination for the federal Clean Growth and Climate Change horizontal initiative. Senior-level (Deputy Minister and Assistant Deputy Minister) interdepartmental committees provide oversight on implementation and ensure alignment of PCF reporting, as well as with other horizontal and departmental processes to ensure effective reporting on results.

Total federal funding allocated from start to end date (dollars)

$4,666,275,806 between April 1, 2016, to March 31, 2028, and $165,883,668 ongoing beyond the end of the funding period for the CGCC horizontal initiative.

Planning highlights

The Government of Canada is committed to taking action on climate change. ECCC will continue to work with federal partners in the implementation of the Pan-Canadian Framework and put Canada on a path to meet its 2030 target. For example, in 2019-20, the federal government will:

  • Reduce GHGs and drive clean growth through the development and implementation of key measures, such as regulations, policies and programs
  • Continue to leverage investments in projects that will generate clean growth and reduce GHGs
  • Continue to implement the Pan-Canadian approach to pricing carbon pollution and stimulate clean innovations and energy efficiency
  • Support the implementation of a range of adaptation efforts to help all levels of government, communities, Indigenous People, businesses and individuals make informed decisions and be better prepared for the impacts of climate change
  • Continue to champion and demonstrate global leadership on climate action
