EnvironmentOxfam Canada strives to ensure its program supports the present generation to realize its potential without compromising the quality of life of future generations. While the scale and nature of its program means environmental impacts are limited, all interventions are assessed to ensure they are ecologically sound, and where applicable, are designed to enhance sustainability and promote good stewardship of the global commons.
