Measuring Environment Canada's Research and Development Performance

Science is the foundation of Environment Canada’s work. Research and development (R&D) supports many of the Department’s science-based functions, including its legislative obligations, commitment to be a world class regulator, enforcement activities, weather services and policy development. R&D is an integral component of the Department’s science; as such, regular assessment is important.

The objective of this report is to provide an updated assessment of Environment Canada’s R&D performance. The report establishes baseline measures of R&D performance according to the principles of Environment Canada’s Science Strategy 2014-2019: Relevance, Transparency, Responsiveness, Excellence and Collaboration. Where possible, the report compares current and past performance, as assessed in the 2009 report Measuring Environment Canada’s Research and Development Performance.

Environment Canada's Science Strategy

Environment Canada’s Science Strategy 2014-2019 is a major milestone for the Department, as it represents a truly department-wide strategy for Environment Canada’s science. The Strategy sets out a vision, mission and principles that represent common goals across the entire Department to better integrate science into the decision-making process and delivery of the Departmental mandate.
