This is the first edition of the Environment Domain Report for the Canadian Index of Wellbeing. The report provides a snapshot on the state and the trends in Canada‘s environment using a set of anthropocentric, natural capital-based indicators. It also represents the beginning of a discussion about how the stocks and flows of Canada‘s natural capital affect human wellbeing. The report therefore highlights some of the choices that policy makers need to consider in order to optimize the long-term wellbeing of Canadians.
