5th National Report to the CBD


Canada reports on implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity every four years. The national reports submitted by Parties to the Convention provide important information on the status of biodiversity around the world and a snapshot of efforts to address biodiversity loss. This information is used to assess global implementation of the Convention and the status of biodiversity worldwide, which is reported in the Global Biodiversity Outlook.

Canada’s federal, provincial and territorial governments, National Aboriginal Organizations, and a range of stakeholders provided information for the 5th National Report, which was submitted to the Convention in March 2014. The report provides an update on the status of biodiversity in Canada and profiles significant actions taken since Canada's last report.
