From the archives: Canadian Biodiversity Strategy (1995)

Canadian Biodiversity Information Network (CBIN) – The Strategy provides a framework for action at all levels that will enhance our ability to ensure the productivity, diversity and integrity of our natural systems and, as a result, our ability as a nation to develop sustainably. It promotes the conservation of biodiversity and the sustainable use of our biological resources, and describes how we will contribute to international efforts to implement the Convention.

The Strategy’s five goals are:

  • conserve biodiversity and use biological resources in a sustainable manner;
  • improve our understanding of ecosystems and increase our resource management capability;
  • promote an understanding of the need to conserve biodiversity and use biological resources in a sustainable manner;
  • maintain or develop incentives and legislation that support the conservation of biodiversity and the sustainable use of biological resources; and
  • work with other countries to conserve biodiversity, use biological resources in a sustainable manner and share equitably the benefits that arise from the utilization of genetic resources.
