Article 24.26 of the CUSMA establishes an Environment Committee composed of senior government representatives to oversee the implementation of the Environment Chapter. The CUSMA Environment Chapter requires the Environmental Committee to meet no later than one year following entry-into-force of the agreement and every two years thereafter, unless the Parties otherwise agree. All Committee decisions and reports will be made available to the public, unless the Parties decide otherwise. The Environment Committee will provide information to the public on matters relevant to its work, as appropriate, and hold a public session after each Committee meeting. To learn more about the CUSMA Environment Chapter, refer to Chapter 24.
