The parties also agreed that environmental protection includes measures to mitigate climate change and adapt to climate change, as well as to ensure the sustainability of natural resources such as fish, forests, clean air and water. The Parties are committed to maintaining a high level of environmental protection in the promotion of trade, investment or labour mobility in Canada. The CFTA also allows parties to take measures that may be inconsistent with certain obligations of the CFTA, provided that such measures are necessary to achieve a legitimate objective and meet certain conditions, including the possibility that a measure may not be applied in a discriminatory manner or that would constitute a disguised trade restriction. Legitimate objectives are defined as those aimed at, for example, the protection of human, animal or plant life or health or the protection of the environment. . . .
