Our network

At its heart, Sierra Club Canada Foundation is a grassroots organization with a “think globally, act locally” philosophy. Members are encouraged to actively contribute to environmental causes that engage or inspire them, in a capacity that best suits their capabilities.

Working with a strong volunteer base and collaboratively with other organizations has allowed Sierra Club Canada Foundation to successfully engage in a range of environmental activities that directly benefit both people and the planet.

The environmental devastation left by climate change, pollution, environmental injustice, and biodiversity loss can leave us feeling helpless, unsure what to do, and unsure if we can do anything. But together we can do something, we can fight back, and we can help our environment heal.
