Call For Input - Sector Sustainability Tables Forum for NGO Comments

DEADLINE EXTENSION for input: March 4, 2005, 5:00pm EST

Responding to Environment Canada's proposed fundamental change in their approach to the environment - their new Competitiveness and Environmental Sustainability Framework (CESF)- the CEN has developed an on-line forum for NGOs to allow comments and an exchange of ideas and information on one specific mechanism of the Framework - the Sector Sustainability Tables.

The Tables are described as a permanent forum for collaboration between federal / provincial / territorial governments and industry, Aboriginal organizations and non-governmental organizations. The Sector Tables are intended to identify how to meet the goals of the CESF through jointly developed, long-term planning. Comments received through the on-line forum will be synthesized into a report for Environment Canada. Registration is required in order to send comments and to view or respond to postings.

The online forum is available at:
