Canadians want strong environmental laws to protect our communities, ecosystems, health, and economy.

This site is a gathering, resource, and action centre for organizations and individuals who want to ensure that Canada works towards enacting and enforcing strong environmental laws.

Our focus starts with environmental assessment, which, because it assesses the potential impacts of proposed projects and plans before harm is done, is an essential tool to maintain a healthy, secure and sustainable Canada.

If you are interested in more information, please see the Connections page, consider having your group sign on as an Endorser, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.


As of March 12, 2012, almost 50 groups have formally endorsed 10 principles that serve as the foundation of environmental assessment for a healthy, secure and sustainable Canada. See our February 29, 2012 media release here.

The full Endorsement Statement with endorsers listed (alphabetically) is available for download here - please note that the pdf does not include a full list of current endorsers, which is available below.

If your organization, group, association or company is interested in becoming an endorser, please contact rforbes [at]
