The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The indicator summarizes the status and trends of ecosystems within national parks. Each ecological integrity indicator consists of a rating (good, fair, poor) and a trend (improving, stable, declining), based on monitoring results and knowledge of ecological systems. The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) reports on the ecological integrity of national parks as an indicator of the condition of Canada's protected areas.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Ecological integrity of national parks indicator summarizes the status and trends of ecosystems within national parks. This indicator supports the measurement of progress towards the long-term goal of the Federal Sustainable Development Strategy 2016–2019: Lands and forests support biodiversity and provide a variety of ecosystem services for generations to come. As of March 2016, the condition of 90% of park ecological integrity indicators was maintained or improved from 2011.

Ecosystems present ecological integrity when their native species and communities, landscapes and functions are intact and likely to persist. The ecological integrity of national parks is assessed by monitoring major park ecosystems, such as forest, freshwater and wetlands. It is a key measure of the condition of our national parks. The Ecological integrity of national parks indicator summarizes the state (good, fair, poor) and trend (improving, stable, declining) of ecosystems within national parks.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Monitoring disposal at sea indicator shows if marine disposal site activities have an environmental impact. It reports the number of monitored ocean disposal sites that show no evidence of marine pollution from disposal activities. Managing what is discarded at sea prevents marine pollution by controlling the material disposed of at marine disposal sites.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Municipal wastewater treatment indicator measures the level of wastewater treatment provided to the Canadian population. Higher levels of wastewater treatment reduce the risk of pollutants from raw wastewater reaching the environment, where they pose risks to human and environmental health. This indicator is not a measure of municipalities' compliance with municipal, provincial or federal wastewater regulations or treatment standards.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Residential water use indicator reports the percentage of Canadian households with water meters and per capita residential water use in Canada from 1991 to 2011. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See the supplementary documentation for data sources and details on how those data were collected and how the indicator was calculated.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. If unsafe bacterial levels are measured or if shoreline investigations show pollution concerns, Environment and Climate Change Canada makes classification recommendations to its Canadian Shellfish Sanitation Program partners. Fisheries and Oceans Canada opens or closes harvest areas based on those recommendations. The fecal coliform levels in marine waters of shellfish harvest areas are monitored to ensure that shellfish are safe for human consumption.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The water quality indicators measure water conditions for various locations across Canada. It combines measurements of a wide range of substances found in water samples. The indicator focuses on how suitable the water is for plants and animals; aquatic life is present in all water bodies, is sensitive to pollution, and reflects the overall health of aquatic ecosystems.
