Sierra Club Canada Foundation operates programs that reflect the ongoing concerns and priorities of our members and supporters.

Save The Gulf of St. Lawrence

Take Action Now to Protect Blue Whales and The Gulf of St. Lawrence!

It’s like a bad dream that you can’t wake up from. The company that has wanted to drill in the Gulf of St. Lawrence for nine years, the same Blue whale calf and mothercompany responsible for seismic testing while the endangered blue whale was migrating, wants a new license.

Great Lakes Protection

The Great Lakes hold 1/5th of the world's fresh surface water supply and currently provide drinking water to over 42 million people. The health of these lakes is critical. The Great Lakes Campaign works to address the concerns related to the Great Lakes Basin, water conservation, and pollution prevention. The specific problems in the Great Lakes have changed over time, but the broader issues have remained – those of deteriorating water quality through industrial and municipal uses, fluctuating water levels, flooding, and shoreline erosion.

Blue Whale Project

The Blue Whale Project is a program of Sierra Club of Canada Foundation that seeks to be the proactive voice of the endangered Blue Whales in Atlantic Canada. The Blue Whale Project recognizes the Gulf of St Lawrence as critical habitat for this species and advocates for research, awareness, and responsible management of this essential marine ecosystem.
