2011 October Report of the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development [Canada]

Source: Office of the Auditor General of Canada

From the Commissioner's Perspective, Introduction:

As Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, my role is to inform Parliament about how well the federal government is managing its environmental and sustainable development commitments. Through objective audit reports, we provide members of Parliament with the information they need to hold the federal government accountable for its action or its inaction.

In this report, I present the results of our audit work on

  • the federal government’s assessment of cumulative environmental effects of oil sands projects in northern Alberta, and
  • its climate change plans under the Kyoto Protocol Implementation Act.

I also provide some perspective on recently completed audit work that I believe will be helpful to members of Parliament, as they conduct a statutory review of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.
