Related federal/provincial/territorial environmental agreements

Under Section 9 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) 1999, the federal government may negotiate an agreement with provinces and territories for the purpose of promoting co-ordinated environmental management. These agreements are work-sharing arrangements that can cover any matter related to the administration of the Act and represent co-operation and co-ordination of efforts to focus priorities for future actions. Nothing in these agreements releases the federal government from any of its responsibilities under the law, nor do they delegate legislative power from one government to another.
