JPAC Questionnaire on Submitters’ Experience with the Citizen Submission Process under NAAEC Articles 14 and 15
The public is occasionally invited to respond to requests for comments on the CEC program as a whole or other matters related to the implementation of the ECA
Deadline: June 17, 2021
Provide your comments and suggestions on the CEC’s new trilateral projects
As part of Canada, Mexico and the United States’ renewed commitment to environmental cooperation, the Joint Public Advisory Committee (JPAC) is seeking comments and suggestions from citizens across North America, on five new trilateral projects aligned with the CEC’s 2021-2025 Strategic Plan, which outlines key priorities for environmental cooperation in the region.
Based on comments received from the public, JPAC members will provide an Advice to the Council. This Advice will include recommendations for the implementation of the projects, and suggestions on key organizations to collaborate and partner with in order to maximize successful implementation.
Through consultations, the JPAC creates a bridge of communication between the public and the Council, which improves the efficiency and transparency in large-scale processes such as projects, laws, and policies
