Get out of Your Own Way: Canada and the UN Aichi Biodiversity Targets Fallout

Dr. Christopher Lemieux, Faculty of Arts


Canada is in the midst of a marine biodiversity crisis. Overfishing, marine mismanagement, rising water temperatures and ship traffic are negatively impacting marine ecosystems. In response, the Canadian government committed to the international Aichi Biodiversity Target of protecting 10% of our marine and coastal areas by 2020. In summer 2019, the Trudeau government declared that it had achieved this target. Or so it seems. Dr. Christopher Lemieux will dive in and discuss what’s being done and if Canada may be exploiting a loophole.

The lecture series is a partnership between the Town of Milton, Wilfrid Laurier University, and the Milton Public Library.

Admission is free. No registration is required. All lectures take place from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
