To best serve the Canadian Earth Science community, CFES currently has six primary objectives. In working to achieve each of its objectives, CFES establishes strategic initiatives it will pursue. For each initiative, specific tactical actions are assigned, all with set timelines.
Objective #1: Provide coordinating role and common voice for member organizations and the Earth Science community in Canada
Objective #2: Coordinate public policy advocacy on behalf of Earth Science in Canada
Objective #3: Facilitate public awareness of Earth Science and Earth Science literacy
Objective #4: Represent and promote Canadian Earth Science internationally
Objective #5: Provide service to member organizations in particular, and to the Earth Science community in general
Objective #6: Coordinate support for professional and academic organizations in Canada
Each year, CFES reviews its objectives and determines its initiatives and actions for the coming year - in the form of an operational plan.
