  • Environment and Climate Change Canada (or simply its former name, Environment Canada, or EC) (French: Environnement et Changement climatique Canada), legally incorporated as the Department of the Environment under the Department of the Environment Act (R.S., 1985, c. E-10 ), is the department of the Government of Canada with responsibility for coordinating environmental policies and programs as well as preserving and enhancing the natural environment and renewable resources. The powers, duties and functions of the Minister of the Environment extend to and include matters relating to: "preserve and enhance the quality of the natural environment, including water, air, soil, flora and fauna; conserve Canada's renewable resources; conserve and protect Canada's water resources;forecast daily weather conditions and warnings, and provide detailed meteorological information to all of Canada; enforce rules relating to boundary waters; and coordinate environmental policies and programs for the federal government."Its ministerial headquarters is located in les Terrasses de la Chaudière, Gatineau, Quebec. Under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA 1999) (R.S., 1999, c. 33), Environment Canada became the lead federal department to ensure the cleanup of hazardous waste and oil spills for which the government is responsible, and to provide technical assistance to other jurisdictions and the private sector as required. The department is also responsible for international environmental issues (e.g., Canada-USA air issues). CEPA was the central piece of Canada's environmental legislation but was replaced when budget implementation bill (C-38) entered into effect in June 2012. Under the Constitution of Canada, responsibility for environmental management in Canada is a shared responsibility between the federal government and provincial/territorial governments. For example, provincial governments have primary authority for resource management including permitting industrial waste discharges (e.g., to the air). The federal government is responsible for the management of toxic substances in the country (e.g., benzene). Environment Canada provides stewardship of the Environmental Choice Program, which provides consumers with an eco-labelling for products manufactured within Canada or services that meet international label standards of (GEN) Global Ecolabelling Network. Environment Canada continues (2005–present) to undergo a structural transformation to centralize authority and decision-making, and to standardize policy implementation. (en)

  • O Enviroment Canada, legalmente incorporado ao Ministério do Meio Ambiente canadense sob o Ato do Ministério do Meio Ambiente (RS, 1985, c. E-10) é o ministério do governo do Canadá com a responsabilidade de coordenar as políticas e os programas de meio ambiente, assim como preservar e melhorar o ambiente natural e a conservação da vida selvagem. O Enviroment Canada é o ministério principal do governo canadense quando se trata de limpeza de resíduos perigosos e de derrames de petróleo. O ministério também é responsável pela meteorologia canadense, bem como pelas pesquisas e educação sobre as mudanças climáticas, assim como pela questão do problema ambiental internacional (por exemplo, a questão da poluição do ar entre Canadá e Estados Unidos). A responsabilidade pela gestão ambiental no Canadá é compartilhada entre os governos federal e estadual/territorial. Por exemplo, os governos provinciais têm autoridade primária para permitir descargas de resíduos industriais (por exemplo, para o ar), enquanto que o governo federal é responsável pela gestão de substâncias tóxicas no país (por exemplo, benzeno). O Enviromental Canada oferece pessoas especializadas do Enviromental Choice Program, que oferece aos consumidores uma rotulagem ecológica para os produtos fabricados no Canadá ou serviços que atendam os padrões internacionais de rotulagem da Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN). O Enviroment Canada está atualmente (a partir de 2005) sofrendo uma transformação estrutural para centralizar a autoridade, a tomada de decisões e para padronizar a implementação política. John Baird é o atual Ministro do Meio Ambiente. (pt)
