Action locale

La force de notre organisation vient de notre réseau d’experts, de partenaires et de volontaires. Nos groupes sont engagés dans de nombreux projets à l’échelle locale. Vous voulez nous aider? Contactez notre bureau national ou un groupe local près de chez vous. Si vous avez déjà rassemblé autour de vous des personnes motivées et que vous souhaitez travailler sur un projet particulier dans votre région, vous pouvez créer un groupe local. Selon les principes de notre organisation:
Les groupes doivent être formés de 3 membres ou plus qui souhaiteraient devenir actifs au sein de leur communauté locale ou d’une zone géographique plus importante; ils doivent se concentrer sur un ou plusieurs enjeux de protection et exister sur le long terme, de façon continue. Autrement, les questions de court terme seront gérées au sein du groupe principal déjà existant ou bien au niveau national si aucun groupe principal n’existe déjà.

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.
