Public Engagement Re: New Climate Plan

In October 2019, Nova Scotia passed the new Sustainable Development Goals Act. The Act creates a framework to set additional goals in regulations that advance Nova Scotia‚Äôs economic, social, and environmental wellbeing, sets ambitious new goals to fight climate change, and commits to a Climate Change Plan for Clean Growth to be released in 2021.

Today, Nova Scotia launched the public engagement process on the development of the new goals as well as the new Climate Plan. The process runs from May 27 to July 26, 2021. 

Nova Scotia Environment and Climate Change is working with the Clean Foundation to coordinate the engagement process. We would like to encourage you to submit your feedback.  

There are a number of ways to do this:

  • Leading public workshops;
  • Encouraging groups to host their own online workshops; and
  • Accepting online submissions and written submissions.   

Further details about submitting feedback are available at 

The public engagement process coordinated by Clean is open to all members of the public and we encourage you to participate.

If you would like to schedule a time to meet virtually with provincial staff on your feedback or you have any questions, please contact Brittany White at  or 902-483-6002.
