The events will kick off on Tuesday, 21 June, beginning at 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Time), with a public forum on managing e-waste in North America, organized by the CEC’s Joint Public Advisory Committee (JPAC).

On Wednesday, 22 June, the CEC Council, consisting of the cabinet-level environment ministers of the three NAFTA countries–Peter Kent of Canada, Juan Elvira Quesada of Mexico, and Lisa P.
