MONTREAL — The Commission for Environmental Cooperation will bring together various members of the public, including Indigenous groups, stakeholders and media for the annual CEC Council where the environment ministers of Canada, Mexico and the United States will discuss sustainable development.
Mexico’s Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources, María Luisa Albores González, will host Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change Steven Guilbeault and the United States Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael S. Regan.
The 29th annual session of the CEC Council will take place on July 14 to 15 and will also be the CEC’s first to take place in person since 2019. The hybrid format will enable communities from across North America to participate both in person and virtually with those in Mérida, Mexico.
The session is meant to solidify trilateral commitments for the preservation, protection and enhancement of the North American environment, and to establish shared priorities for environmental cooperation in North America. The session will also promote dialogue and knowledge-sharing among an intersectional and intergenerational group of stakeholders, including leaders from business, youth, Indigenous peoples and local communities.
