Grassroots Action

What makes the Sierra Club Canada Foundation so effective is our network of experts, partners and volunteers. Our chapters are engaged in many projects at the local level. Want to get involved? Contact our national office or your local chapter. If you have a dedicated group of members who want to lead their own projects within a region, you could start a Group. According to our organization's policy: Groups may be formed by any three or more members who wish to be active in their local community or within a larger geographic area, in relation to a particular conservation issue or issues, with the intention that the group exist on an ongoing basis. Otherwise, more time-limited local issues are to be managed within the auspices of the Chapter, or if none exists, then in co- operation with program staff working at the national level.

How’s the air in Ottawa today?

Help us find out. Join our Breathe Easy Project!

Air pollution prematurely kills some 500 people in Ottawa every year, and about 14,600 in Canada.

How serious is that? About as deadly as the COVID-19 pandemic. As a comparison, halfway through 2020, about 240 people died in Ottawa from the Covid-19 virus and about 7300 in Canada. But we want to change this.

Tell Minister of Municipal Affairs to Rescue Freele Tract

One of the great victories of the environmental movement of Ontario is now under attack — the Simcoe County Forests. The system was created under the leadership of Premier E. C. Drury, and his friend Edmund Zavitz, to rescue the Simcoe County from being buried in marching sand wastes. This was triggered by ruthless deforestation. 

The Freele Tract is being defended by a valiant 770-member environmental protection group which should never have had to be organized. It’s called the Friends of Simcoe County Forests.
