The CEC’s Operational Plan describes cooperative action to protect and enhance the North American environment. It is focused on continuing implementation of program priorities established by the CEC Council (the environment ministers or equivalent of Canada, Mexico and the United States). These priorities are:

  • Information for Decision-making;
  • Capacity Building;
  • Trade and Environment.

It is anticipated that, based upon its consideration of the proposed plan, JPAC will provide an Advice to Council on the CEC Operational Plan for 2007–2009 in the near future.

The deadline to provide written comments on the proposed Operational Plan for 2007–2009 is 24 November. Written comments should be sent to Marcela Orozco at the CEC Secretariat by e-mail at [email protected].
