Canada Policy

As a G7 leader, Canada aims to advance its key domestic and international priorities, which span gender equality, peace and security, climate change and building a sustainable global economy.

Since 2015, Canada has committed to the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, signed the Paris Agreement, legislated the Net-zero Accountability Act and adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The PRI continues to advocate for greater policy coherence in Canada, focusing on the high-level priorities of fiduciary duty, mandatory climate disclosure and the development of a transition taxonomy to improve alignment of Canada’s capital markets with its domestic and international sustainability commitments.
