Our process helps Canada achieve sustainable development solutions that integrate environmental and economic considerations to ensure the lasting prosperity and well-being of our nation.


We rigorously research and conduct high quality analysis on issues of sustainable development. Our thinking is original and thought provoking.


We convene opinion leaders and experts from across Canada around our table to share their knowledge and diverse perspectives. We stimulate debate and integrate polarities. We create a context for possibilities to emerge.


We generate ideas and provide realistic solutions to advise governments, Parliament and Canadians. We proceed with resolve and optimism to bring Canada’s economy and environment closer together.

NRT Plenary Session – March 3-4, 2010 – Ottawa, Ontario

March 3-4, 2010

The NRT builds consensus, beginning with our Members. NRT Members are appointed by the Government of Canada for up to three years. Our Members are themselves a group of distinguished sustainability leaders active in businesses, universities, environmental groups, labour and public policy from across Canada. They meet in a round table format that offers a safe haven for discussion and encourages the unfettered exchange of ideas leading to consensus.While they hold different perspectives, they think and work through the same lens – bringing the environment and economy together.
