Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME)
“The CCME works to promote cooperation on and coordination of interjurisdictional issues such as waste management, air pollution and toxic chemicals. CCME members propose nationally-consistent environmental standards and objectives so as to achieve a high level of environmental quality across the country. While it proposes change, CCME does not impose its suggestions on its members since it has no authority to implement or enforce legislation. Each jurisdiction decides whether to adopt CCME proposals.”
