Employment and Sustainable Development: Opportunities for Canada

By Cynthia Pollock Shea on October 3, 2001
This report documents dozens of economic development strategies that are financially viable, environmentally restorative, and socially responsible.

Ideas such as retro-fitting buildings to be more energy efficent, investing in aquaculture, and improving the environment performance of the tourism industry are valuable to three sectors ripe for private sector expansion, and are applicable and of interest to an international audience.

Environmental and information technologies, improved management of natural resources and value-added processing of fish, forestry, and agricultural products are also highlighted. Improved cooperation among public, private and community sectors is a central theme.
