Who We Are
Faith & the Common Good (Registered charity #82827 6121 RR0001, www.faithcommongood.org established in 2000) is a non-sectarian, charitable network dedicated to assist and inspire religious congregations and spiritual groups of all backgrounds to take collective action in creating more sustainable communities.
We work with local faith-based, environmental, municipal, Indigenous, and community partners across the country to host a wide variety of practical, educational and spiritual programs that encourage: faith building energy efficiency; the re-purposing of surplus places of worship; faith sector support for clean energy and active transportation; interfaith climate justice and clean water alliances; and increased support for our climate vulnerable neighbors. Our network is composed of people of faith, hope, and spirit who, despite our differences in theology, dress and culture, share a calling to protect our ecosystem and a passion for community service.
On average each year, we work with close to 600 faith communities, from over 14 different spiritual traditions, to host almost 1,000 sustainability events and activities that reach more than 10,000 Canadians. With more than 1 of 3 Canadians claiming an active faith affiliation, we believe that galvanizing faith groups to be neighborhood sustainability role models is crucial for a greener, healthier, more resilient Canada.
