We have provided them here as recommended readings to help obtain a better understanding of how each country (in this case Canada) is obligated through the 2030 Agenda to develop a country specific approach to implementing the SDGs. Canada’s approach is outlined in recommended reading 1 below. Canada’s (as with all other UN member countries) approach is informed by the global indicators and targets outlined in recommended reading 2 below.
- Statistics Canada. (2021). The Canadian Indicator Framework for the Sustainable Development Goals
