Supporting a Green Shift in the Arts, Culture, Heritage and Sport Sectors

The Honourable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Canadian Heritage, announced today the creation of two ministerial consulting committees to help support a green shift in the arts, culture, heritage and sport sectors. One committee will be dedicated to the arts, culture and heritage sectors while the other will be dedicated to the sport sector.

Canadian Heritage recognizes that a green shift in these sectors can encourage further change and engage society as a whole in efforts to address climate change issues.

These committees will help guide Canadian Heritage in supporting the arts, culture, heritage and sport sectors as they develop, adopt or enhance their environmental practices as well as continue their important work as leaders of environmental change in our society.

With the help of key stakeholders, the Department of Canadian Heritage aims to strengthen its role in ensuring that it can be a leader in contributing to Canada’s goal of net zero emissions by 2050.
