THE PROBLEM

Without urgent action, Canada will experience climate change twice as fast as other parts of the world. Yet Canada has missed every climate target we’ve ever set, and is still approving new fossil fuel projects that will lock us in to future greenhouse gas emissions.

The Solution

By pushing for strong climate change action and accountability, we’re helping build a healthier future for everyone. Through our programs, we’re working to build more sustainable communities, challenging the power of the fossil fuel industry and ensuring Canada does our fair share to fix this global crisis.
