The Economics and Environmental Policy Research Network (EEPRN), hosted by the University of Ottawa, brings together leading researchers from across the country to study and develop innovative policies for protecting Canada’s environment while simultaneously building a stronger economic future.

About the Network

This project was undertaken with the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Federal Department of Environment and Climate Change. This initiative aims at enhancing Environment and Climate Change Canada’s capacity to integrate environmental and economic policy considerations and research into its regulatory functions.

The Network mobilizes over 74 scholars, representing 12 disciplines, from 19 Canadian universities and research organizations. Also involved are 12 international scholars, including many of the leading researchers in their fields. The Network will build connections and capacity, foster greater dialogue between academics and government partners, and will generate innovative, policy-relevant research.
