Program Activity 2.3

Responsible Natural Resource Management


Greater knowledge of risks and environmentally responsible practices could help to prevent and reduce the environmental impacts of past, present and future natural resource development. The objectives of the program activity are to enable government departments, regulatory bodies and industry to assess these impacts to the environment; and develop, monitor and maintain resources or clean up wastes responsibly. These objectives are achieved through the provision of assessments and knowledge rooted in sound science, and through waste management efforts in collaboration with provinces, federal agencies and municipalities.
