The NRTEE has been focused on sustaining Canada’s prosperity without borrowing resources from future generations or compromising their ability to live securely.

Our mission is to generate and promote sustainable development solutions

to advance Canada’s national environmental and economic interests simultaneously,

through the development of innovative policy research and advice.

We accomplish that mission by fostering sound and well-researched reports on priority issues and by offering advice to governments on how best to reconcile the often divergent challenges of economic prosperity and environmental conservation.  A Unique Convener

The NRTEE brings together a group of distinguished sustainability leaders active in businesses, universities, environmental groups, labour, public policy, and Aboriginal communities across Canada. Our members are appointed by the federal government for a mandate of up to three years. They meet in a round table format that offers a safe haven for discussion and encourages the unfettered exchange of ideas leading to consensus. This is how we reconcile positions that have traditionally been at odds.
