December 2, 2011 – St. John’s, Newfoundland – Planning For Prosperity – Building Canada’s Low-Carbon Growth Plan

NRT Stakeholder Consultation Session
December 2, 2011 – St. John’s, Newfoundland

The National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (NRT) is investigating the economic risks and opportunities of climate change for Canada. As part of this initiative the NRT is exploring what a low-carbon economy looks like for Canada. This meeting is one of ten regional events being held by the NRT and its Regional Partners across the country throughout November and December, 2011. The purpose of these sessions is to obtain stakeholder input and advice on the regional and pan-Canadian opportunities and challenges inherent in the global transition to a low-carbon economy, and how Canada can succeed and prosper in this new reality. This input will shape the findings and recommendations of the NRT in its development of a low-carbon growth plan for Canada.

These meeting will help:

  • Solicit broad-based private sector input on how Canada should position itself in the global low-carbon transition;
  • Improve our understanding of regional priorities and opportunities; and
  • Ensure that our advice is grounded in the regional realities.
