This is a critical time to press for better environmental laws in Canada. The federal government is seeking public input on potential changes to environmental laws such as the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, Fisheries Law, Navigation Protection Act and National Energy Board Act.

Now is your chance, the best opportunity in a generation, to seek stronger environmental laws to protect the air, water, lands we need to survive and wildlife that we love.

See the list below for upcoming hearings in a community near you.  It is recommended that you register in advance.Image of a button
