Canada is taking action. We are working with provinces and territories and gathering input from Indigenous Peoples, industry, municipalities, not-for-profit organizations, and research institutions to develop an approach by the end of 2018. Environment ministers will meet in November at the annual meeting of the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment to discuss a Canada-wide framework for eliminating plastic waste and reducing marine litter. Discussions will continue into 2019 through the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment and with other levels of government, Indigenous communities, industry, and others to identify specific actions to reduce plastic waste and its pollution.
