Our mission is to protect the diversity of nature and our quality of life.
We work with government, business and individuals to conserve our environment by providing science-based education, advocacy and policy work, and acting as a catalyst for the social change that today's situation demands.
Our top goals:
Protecting our climate — ensure that Canada is doing its fair share to avoid dangerous climate change and is on track to achieve a safe level of greenhouse gas emissions.
Transforming the economy — make certain that Canadians can maintain a high quality of life within the finite limits of nature through efficient resource use.
Protecting nature — work to protect the diversity and health of Canada’s marine, freshwater, and terrestrial creatures and ecosystems.
Reconnecting with nature — ensure that Canadians, especially youth, learn about their dependence on a healthy environment through outdoor education.
Building community — engage Canadians to live healthier, more fulfilled and just lives with tips on building Earth-friendly infrastructure, making smart energy choices, using efficient transportation, and being mindful of the products, food and water we use.
