Do you have a passion for the environment and want to do something to help stop Climate Change? Would you love to be part of something bigger and make an impact in your community? Are you looking to get back in shape and achieve your 2017 fitness goals? Or... do you just simply enjoy running for the fun of it?
The summer is a time when many folks take a break, take it a little slower and take some needed time off.
And while our small team plans to do a bit of that, in fact, it’s shaping up to be one of the busiest times for us.
The summer is also a time when funds drop off, but our work doesn’t stop! We could use your support and a funding boost at this time.
-- IMPROVED OFFER --
The issues we face are alarming.
I've convinced our fundraising team to make a special offer - we need as many supporters on board right now as possible.
Sierra Club Canada Foundation and its Mission
Sierra Club Canada Foundation (SCCF) is a Canada Revenue Agency registered charity whose mission is to advance the preservation and protection of the natural environment in Canada and across the globe. Since 1971, the SCCF has funded tens of millions of dollars’ worth of important work, from small local projects to large, multi-year campaigns with tens of volunteers, organizers and scientists.
My husband and I chose to move to Canada from the U.S. after George W. Bush was re-elected in 2004 (assuming you believe he was elected the first time). We were seeking a better fit for our values—a place we felt was pro-environment and anti-war.
It’s the holidays, and I can’t get this song out of my head, and those beautiful words sung by our beloved Joni Mitchell,
I wish I had a river.
Admittedly, the song is a good dose of melancholy, and some longing for home, a longing for Canada, where the landscape is rich with rivers so long you could teach your feet to fly.
Breathing is easier “beyond coal.”
In 2007, before the shut down of the coal-fired power generating plants in Ontario, there were 29 smog days and 11 smog advisories in Toronto. It seemed that almost every hot day there was choking smog. At that time, I couldn’t even escape to my cottage in the Kawarthas. That same year, there were 21 smog days and 8 smog advisories in Peterborough County.
It's been a tempestuous month.
In the last weeks, two world events have shaken our world and will continue shake up our work in the year ahead.
In Marrakesh, world leaders and civil society gathered to push for implementation of The Paris Agreement. The event has exceeded expectations: entry onto force of The Paris Agreement ahead of schedule, over 175 nations signing the agreement, 47 countries committing to 100% clean energy between 2030 and 2050.
For decades, Canadian charities have given voice to concerns of Canadians who want social progress, better health and a clean and safe environment. From laws banning smoking in public places and the creation of anti-drinking and driving laws, to reducing acid rain, these important measures and more were a result of charities voicing Canadians’ concerns.
Things are heating up in our campaign to protect the blue whale and the Gulf of St. Lawrence and I want to share the latest news with you!
In just the last few days, 1,347 concerned people like you have signed and sent a letter asking the government not to settle with a New Jersey company who has been thwarted from developing a destructive quarry in the Bay of Fundy.
Because of you, we have been an instrumental force on this campaign since the beginning, and we’re not going anywhere. But we need your help!
In response to the ongoing negotiations of the Canada-Mercosur and Canada-Pacific Alliance Free Trade Agreements, the Canadian Environmental Law Association (CELA), joined by the Climate Action Network Canada, Council of Canadians, Greenpeace Canada, the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario, Sierra Club Canada Foundation, the Trade Justice Network, Unifor and the United Steelworkers, have collectively sent the below submission to Environment and Climate Change Canada and Global Affairs Canada for their consideration.
CDPQ infra va commencer à couper des arbres en face d'etang heron où les hérons nichent pour la REM. 30 espèces nichent et utilisent cette zone chaque année et sa perte sera fortement ressentie par la population d'oiseaux. Nous ne pouvons pas laisser cela se produire sans combat. S'il vous plaît sortez et montrez que couper des arbres dans cette zone précieuse n'est pas OK! Nous nous retrouverons à la fin d'Alfred Noble dans Technoparc.
