Solutions Agenda


This Agenda reflects our unanimous belief that the time is ripe for Canadian communities to become leaders in the implementation of sustainable technologies, infrastructure and building design, but this leadership is highly dependent on local, provincial and federal governments facilitating further innovation. The Agenda consists of concrete actions are organized under the six thematic imperatives – access to opportunities and services, climate change adaptation and mitigation, social infrastructure, physical infrastructure, governance, and new economic/financial accounting measurements. There is one overarching critical imperative that must be addressed is to recognize the contributions of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis communities to the political future of this country and to resolve outstanding governance issues, fairly and as soon as possible.
