  • 19 Nov 2013
  • University of Ottawa
Hosted by the Institute of the Environment

How can we better leverage the actions of governments, industry, and civil society to conserve biodiversity in Canada?

The Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development will release his Fall 2013 report evaluating Canada’s biodiversity conservation programs on November 5th. Building on this report, please join us for a discussion about how we can better work together to achieve shared biodiversity conservation goals, across species, landscapes, agencies and sectors of society.

The half-day seminar will include:
  • Environment Commissioner Neil Maxwell and study leaders presenting the Fall 2013 Report of the Commissioner evaluating many of Canada’s key federal biodiversity conservation responsibilities and programs
  • What the Commissioner's findings mean for Canada’s future conservation efforts: delivered by Avrim Lazar, Consultant and former CEO of the Forest Products Association of Canada
  • A lively panel discussion among experts from industry, academia, First Nations, and conservation organizations examining how, together, we can better conserve nature in Canada.
  • A moderated discussion about the Commissioner’s findings and what they mean
