Federal Government Launches Interactive Portal on Climate Action

As part of its Earth Day 2016 activities, the Federal Government recently launched a new online engagement portal for Canadians to share their ideas and solutions to promote clean growth and help tackle climate change. Engaging the public is an essential part of ongoing efforts across all levels of government to develop a pan-Canadian framework on these issues, and builds on the Vancouver Declaration adopted by Canada's First Ministers on March 3, 2016.
