Sustainable Development

At the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), sustainable development (SD) means managing our operations and services in a way that is economically, environmentally, and socially responsible. It is also about encouraging our employees to consider and apply the principles of SD in their jobs.

This section of our Web site highlights how the CRA takes action to support SD while respecting the federal legislative requirements of the Federal Sustainable Development Act (FSDA).
