Maintaining a clean, safe and sustainable environment

In Canada, we have a responsibility to protect our fresh water reserves, abundant forests and expansive agricultural lands.  Genomics is equipping Canada to preserve a clean, safe and sustainable environment through the development of technologies to monitor and manage the impacts of humans, climate change, and invasive species. Canada is recognized for its global leadership in biodiversity science, breakthroughs in further understanding of economically and ecologically important trees, and development of new tools to de-contaminate polluted sites.
