Annex A: Clean Air Agenda

As a legislated and permanent framework for reporting on federal initiatives supporting sustainable development, the FSDS provides the vehicle for public reporting on the overall progress of the Clean Air Agenda (CAA) at a government-wide level. Individual CAA departments also report annually through their DSDS on the specific CAA activities for which they are responsible. The CAA programming is integrated into the implementation strategies of the 2013–2016 FSDS.

The CAA (which expires on March 31, 2016) represents collaborative efforts within the federal government and with other jurisdictions to realize health, economic and environmental benefits for Canadians. These initiatives were organized as follows:

The federal partners are: Environment and Climate Change Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Global Affairs Canada, Health Canada, Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, National Research Council Canada, Natural Resources Canada, Parks Canada, Public Health Agency of Canada, Standards Council of Canada, and Transport Canada. For more information regarding the CAA, see the Departmental Sustainable Developments Strategies of the federal partners named above.
