The government has released a draft of its Federal Sustainable Development Strategy (FSDS) for 2019-2022. The FSDS is updated every three years to fine-tune Canada’s sustainable development priorities, establish goals and targets, and identify actions to achieve them.
Thirteen areas are covered under the Strategy, from infrastructure to clean energy, healthy coasts and oceans to sustainable food. Strong environmental stewardship combined with bold decarbonization will ensure a thriving society not just for today but for generations to come.
I am eager to learn from my constituents what sustainability means to you, what it could look like across the riding with strong federal support, and what ought to be prioritized in the next three years. I encourage you to submit any thoughts you have on the proposed Strategy by e-mailing my Research Assistant at Elizabeth.May.A3@parl.gc.ca. This feedback will form an integral part of my own submission to the consultation. You can access the draft by clicking here.
I know the beauty and richness of Saanich-Gulf Islands means a great deal to all who live here. It is my privilege as your Member of Parliament to champion your ideas at the national level to better strengthen sustainable development across all of Canada.
Thank you in advance for participating in this important matter.
Elizabeth May, O.C.
Member of Parliament
Leader of the Green Party of Canada
