The Panel of Environmental Advisors provides broad, strategic advice on the work of the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, including
- current or potential issues or major work themes for the Office of the Auditor General of Canada;
- issues that should be raised in the Commissioner’s reports to Parliament; and
- emerging environmental and sustainable development issues that the Office should consider in its planning.
The members of the Panel of Environmental Advisors, who are selected by the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, report as personal advisors to the Commissioner. The panel meets once a year, at the call of the Chair. Members are encouraged to suggest items for discussion.
