Summary

"The Canada- Wide Acid Rain Strategy for Post-2000 ... was signed on October 19, 1998, by all 26 Canadian Energy and Environment Ministers to provide a framework for the long-term management of acid rain in Canada. The Strategy was developed in response to the recognition by science and policy communities in the 1990s that although acidifying emission control programs in both Canada and the United States were successfully meeting targets and caps, substantially greater reductions would be needed in order to halt acid rain damage in eastern Canada. The body mandated to coordinate the implementation of The Strategy is the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) Acid Rain Task Group (ARTG)."
