Environmental Protection of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights on the Pacific Coast of Canada
David Suzuki Foundation
In February 2016, the David Suzuki Foundation made this submission to the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. It highlights important aspects of Canada’s international human rights obligations relating to the enjoyment of a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment. Based on discussions with Pacific coastal communities, this submission sets out Canada’s obligations under international human rights law to protect its Pacific coastal ecosystems.
