Emerging from the famous Brundtland Report, Our Common Future, the National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy (NRTEE or Round Table) was a model for convening diverse and competing interests around one table to create consensus ideas and viable suggestions for sustainable development. The NRTEE focused on sustaining Canada’s prosperity without borrowing resources from future generations or compromising their ability to live securely. The Conservative government of Stephen Harper ended funding to NRTEE, which will cease to exist after March 31, 2013.

Overview[edit]

The National Round Table was an independent policy advisory agency to the Government of Canada. Its mandate was to raise awareness among Canadians and their governments about the challenges of sustainable development.

Over 25-year it released dozens of reports on priority issues – forests, brownfields, infrastructure, energy, water, air, climate change, and more. It offered advice to governments on how best to reconcile and integrate the often divergent challenges of economic prosperity and environmental conservation.

It brought together hundreds of leaders and experts with first-hand knowledge in a diversity of areas. Its Members, appointed by the Federal government, were active in businesses, universities, environmentalism, labour, public policy, and community life from across Canada.
