Government of Canada launches consultations on the National Strategy for Sustainable Development

Canada NewsWire

Canadians will help shape Canada's implementation of the 2030 Agenda 

GATINEAU, QC, March 15, 2019 /CNW/ - The Government of Canada strongly supports the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and is committed to working with its national and international partners to build a more peaceful, inclusive and prosperous world, that leaves no one behind. In September 2015, Canada and all other 192 United Nation member States adopted the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which is a blueprint towards ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring equal opportunity for everyone by 2030.

Achieving this vision requires a whole-of-society effort. Across the country and around the globe, Canadians are already answering the 2030 Agenda's call to action. That is why from March 15 until May 15, 2019, Canadians are invited to contribute their ideas to help shape the development of Canada's 2030 Agenda National Strategy which will create a common vision for Canada's path forward.

By bringing together the voices and efforts of all levels of government, Indigenous peoples, municipalities, civil society, the private sector, and all Canadians, the National Strategy for Sustainable Development will accelerate action on the goals and create a common vision for Canada's path forward. Our objective is to turn the 2030 Agenda into transformative action.

The Government of Canada wants to hear from Canadians on what sustainable development means to them, what they are doing to build a more sustainable, and equitable Canada, and what can be done to advance progress on the 2030 Agenda.

Canadians are encouraged to take part in the online consultation by submitting their views, taking a poll, or voting on ideas.

  • Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and join the #Can2030Agenda conversation by sharing your views about the #SDGs online.

Quotes

"The 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals provide us with an opportunity to build a more inclusive, peaceful, sustainable and prosperous society that leaves no one behind. Canada has the responsibility to deliver, and show leadership on these Goals. This is important to Canadians today and a responsibility towards the generations to come. Together we can build a society that truly benefits to all."
The Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development

Quick Facts

  • The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a 15-year global framework that was adopted by Canada and all other 192 United Nations Member States in 2015.
  • At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 169 targets and over 230 indicators that encompass the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development.
  • The SDGs are about meeting people's needs – for a safe home, a decent job, education for our children, quality health care, and a thriving environment to live in.
  • The goals are all connected. They recognize that ending poverty goes hand-in-hand with improving health and education, reducing inequality, spurring economic growth, and taking action on climate change.
  • On July 17th, 2018, Canada presented its first Voluntary National Review report at the United Nations High Level Political Forum in New York - which took stock of Canada's progress and set the stage for the continued work ahead.
