Discussion Paper on an Environment Outlook for Canada

By Dale S. Rothman on August 9, 2007
This document provides background information on a proposed Environment Outlook for Canada coming out of a series of consultation activities and research. It provides scoping results, conclusions and recommendations. At this point, it is clear that there is broad interest in some form of an EOC, in terms of both the products it could produce and the processes it would engender. Still, a number of challenges and opportunities have been identified which need to be addressed in moving forward. These include the feasibilities, costs and risks of various options for an Environment Outlook for Canada. It is recommended that the next steps in the process of an EOC focus on continued discussions with potential collaborators within and outside of Environment Canada in order to further explore these issues, leading to the development of a formal proposal for consideration by the fall of 2007.
