Sierra Club Canada Foundation empowers people to be leaders in protecting, restoring and enjoying healthy and safe ecosystems. We bring attention to environmental issues in many parts of the country where national attention is too often lacking.
The Sierra Club Canada Foundation (SCCF) is a national registered charity that includes four chapters: Atlantic, Québec, Ontario, and Prairie, plus the Sierra Youth Coalition, a group whose mandate is to empower young people to become community leaders.
Our success depends on the support of individuals and organizations whose generous donations make our work possible.

The Sierra Club Canada Foundation has seen huge successes over the past year alone. Our Ontario Chapter and national branch helped to expand Canada’s plastic ban to include exports of banned products and continue to puch for more single use plastic items to be banned.
Our Wild Child programs have gotten kids outside, learning and connecting with nature, for tens of thousands of hours.
We’ve played a crucial role in stalling, for now, the development of new LNG plants on Canada’s East Coast that threaten our climate and the safety of local Indigenous communities. We continue to play a central role in resisting against dangerous, climate-destroying oil projects, like Bay du Nord and Line 5.
Our Atlantic Chapter is doing critical one-the-ground work to bring energy democracy to communities and prevent further coal mining. Our Prairie Chapter is actively fighting to protect water sources and to build community gardens with hundreds of wildflowers and local grasses.
Our Ontario chapter is also planting trees and monitoring air quality in Ottawa. Our Quebec Chapter meanwhile is helping build local resistance to the Line 5 oil pipeline and is undertaking work to protect and conserve bird species and biodiversity by working with local municipalities.
Sierra Youth runs a groundbreaking podcast which has interviewed high ranking politicians about the future of youth and the environment, among many other guests.
