Responsible Resource Development: Environmental Protection and Safety
October 1, 2012
Responsible Resource Development achieves the right balance to unleash the potential of our resource sectors to create high-value jobs across Canada while strengthening safety and environmental protection. The development of our natural resources will only proceed if it can be done safely and responsibly.
Abundant in natural resources.
Breathtaking national parks and majestic shorelines.
We're protecting the environment with new fines for companies that break the law.
Returning developed land to its natural state.
Increasing pipeline inspections by 50 per cent.
Requiring double hulls for tankers.
Responsible Resource Development…
Preserving our heritage, now and for future generations.
A message from the Government of Canada.
