Notice of Intent to Conduct a Strategic Environmental Assessment of the Canada-Peru Foreign Investment Protection Agreement (FIPA)

Closing date: June 15, 2005

The Government of Canada intends to conduct an Environmental Assessment on the Canada-Peru Foreign Investment Protection Agreement (FIPA) and invites comments on the likely environmental impacts on Canada.

In keeping with the 1999 Directive requiring federal departments to consider the environmental impacts of policy initiatives, the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade developed the 2001 Framework for Conducting Environmental Assessments of Trade Negotiations (the Framework). It should be noted that the Framework is intended to be applied in a flexible fashion, so that it can be adapted to the nature of the agreement to be negotiated. To reflect its commitment to sustainable development, the government of Canada committed to an EA of the likely environmental impacts on Canada of the proposed Canada-Peru FIPA. This is the first FIPA to benefit from an EA.

All interested parties are invited to submit their views on environmental matters related to the Foreign Investment Protection Agreement by June 15, 2005.
