Succession – Program at a Glance

In this Canada’s 150th, we explore the succession of science, knowledge, policy and organisations and the nature of this change on the environment. Many of us identify with natural or ecological succession – the process by which a plant or animal community successively gives way to another, leading to a new state. But the same is true of our organisations, as we have matured in our purpose and knowledge, and have seen leadership transfer to successive generations. The ongoing growth of knowledge through research, monitoring, observation, analyses and education have informed our actions on the ground, the policies we have developed and our legislative responses to emerging challenges.
