BACKGROUNDER — The Maple Leaf in the OECD: Canada’s Environmental Performance
This document provides background information for the report, The Maple Leaf in the OECD: Canada’s Environmental Performance. The study rates the record of 25 developed countries belonging to the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development using 28 environmental indicators. The most recent environmental data from the OECD, of which Canada is a member, was used to formulate the results.
Canada currently ranks 24th but the study proves that if Canada strengthened its environmental policies, we could become a world leader in environmental sustainability.
