Economic and Regulatory Affairs – Environment Canada

The Economic and Regulatory Affairs (ERA) Directorate is an Ottawa-based group within Environment Canada made-up of economists, some engineers and other social science experts. It was created in 1998 to consolidate and strengthen economic and policy analysis within the department. ERA focuses on three areas: incorporating environmental considerations into the development and implementation of federal economic policies; ensuring that economic considerations are factored into environmental regulations and policies; ensuring that regulatory policy and processes within the department are consistent with government-wide policies.
