MISSION: Established as a follow-up to the Earth Summit, the Projet de Société is a multi-stakeholder partnership of government, indigenous, business and voluntary organizations committed to promoting Canada's transition to a sustainable future. The Projet provides a forum for bringing sectors and individuals together to build consensus and partnerships and to link their activities and contributions to a common purpose. The immediate goal of the Projet is to build a National Sustainable Development Strategy. Such a strategy must build on the many relevant activities already begun in Canada by governments, businesses, industry associations and local communities, giving them clearer strategic focus and linkage.
