The CEC as a long-standing platform for environmental cooperation among Canada, Mexico and the USA, is well positioned to build on the momentum from Paris and respond to our Leaders’ mandates. At this Council Session, we are proud that the CEC has not only become a model to advance environmental protection while promoting trade and economic growth, but has also expanded the involvement of indigenous people and youth in its vision. In light of our recent renewed commitment to enhance our regional alignment on climate change and environmental policy, the CEC should ensure it remains a leading forum globally that enhances support for both environment and trade.
