Current campaigns include protecting our bee populations by opposing neonicotinoid pesticides; Fighting to protect endangered woodland caribou and their home in the boreal forest; Defending Algonquin Provincial Park by pushing for an end to logging within park boundaries; and promoting a healthy climate by working on issues surrounding the tar sands, tankers, pipelines and fracking.

Is This Job For You?

Our Canvass works in residential neighbourhoods of Toronto to raise awareness about our campaigns and fundraise to support our work.
