Our programs are working across the country to make a real impact for our environment and directly in the lives of people impacted by environmental issues.
Whether it is air quality in Ottawa or energy democracy in Atlantic Canada, whether it is protecting water in the Prairies or protecting biodiversity in Québec our programs are making a huge impact.
Our Wild Child outdoor education programs have gotten kids outside in nature for tens of thousands of hours in Alberta, PEI, and Nova Scotia.
Our program areas
The Sierra Club Canada Foundation has programs focusing on outdoor education (Wild Child), climate and clean energy, environmental and social justice, nature and endangered species, exploring and enjoying the outdoors, as well as conservation and the circular economy.
Uniquely, our programs link the most pressing environmental and social issues of our time with local grassroots organizing that makes a direct impact.
We endeavour to build and strengthen meaningful relationships with Indigenous Peoples, without being extractive. We aim to engage with diverse communities, such as Indigenous, immigrant, youth, people with disabilities, and lower income communities, ensuring accessibility to nature and SCCF’s mission.
Sierra Club Canada works to protect natural spaces and endangered species across Canada and internationally by grassroots action and by building partnerships between local, national, and international organizations.
In order to preserve our planet, we need to learn to live in harmony with nature. On both the national and the local level, the Sierra Club Canada Foundation is engaged in promoting ways to live in a sustainable fashion.
