The Implementation Committee’s role is to develop the initial institutional structure for the Canadian Sustainability Standards Board (CSSB), which will be operational by April 1, 2023.
The Implementation Committee’s work serves the public interest by:
- defining and codifying key governance and due process considerations;
- initiating the recruitment process for the Chair and members of the CSSB;
- providing transitional oversight of the CSSB until decisions on a permanent oversight structure are made; and
- establishing a robust structure that will support the development of standards in the public interest that can be adopted by various sectors in Canada.
