Environmental Petitions

Environmental petitions are a unique way for Canadian residents—acting as individuals or on behalf of an organization—to bring their concerns and questions about environmental issues related to sustainable development to the attention of the federal ministers, with a guaranteed response.

The Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development administers environmental petitions on behalf of the Auditor General of Canada.
