Full text
15.4.7. The mission of the Conseil de gestion is to provide a governance framework for the Green Fund and coordinate its management in keeping with the principles of sustainable development, effectiveness, efficiency and transparency.
To that end, the Conseil de gestion gives priority to project-based management centred on achieving the best results to further government principles, directions and objectives, in particular those set out in the sustainable development strategy adopted under the Sustainable Development Act (chapter D‑8.1.1), in the Act to affirm the collective nature of water resources and to promote better governance of water and associated environments (chapter C-6.2), in the residual materials management policy provided for in section 53.4 of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q‑2) and in the multiyear climate change action plan provided for in section 46.3 of the Environment Quality Act, the latter of which contributes to the fight against climate change and fosters the achievement of government greenhouse gas reduction targets.
More specifically, it
(1)  annually prepares the Green Fund’s accounts in collaboration with the Minister and the Minister of Finance;
(2)  proposes to the Minister the information to be entered into the accounts of the Green Fund;
(3)  enters into the agreements referred to in section 15.4.3, ensures that the commitments made by the ministers with regard to those agreements are met, and approves the administrative costs to be debited from the Green Fund under those agreements;
(4)  prepares, on a yearly basis and in collaboration with the Minister, a plan for the measures financed by the Green Fund, including in particular the transfers made under section 15.4.1, and an expenditures plan in that regard, in compliance with the government objectives established for that purpose;
(5)  assesses the Green Fund’s performance with respect to the uses to which it is specifically allocated and recommends to the Minister any adjustments required to improve performance;
(6)  ensures supervision and oversight of the Green Fund’s treasury activities and financial flows;
(7)  collaborates in the preparation of Green Fund estimates for each fiscal year; and
(8)  proposes the appropriate strategic directions, objectives and courses of action applicable to the Green Fund.
