Environmental Petitions

Environmental petitions are a unique way for Canadian residents or representatives of a Canadian corporation 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.
