Government’s key role is to serve as the trustee of the commonwealth and the common health for this and future generations.  Yet …

Canada now stands out as one of the last major industrialized countries opposed to targets for deep reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and one of the biggest blockers of climate change negotiations.

Canadians for Action on Climate Change is a non-profit organization of activists, academia, physicians and citizens focused on climate change, true cost economy and relocalization. Our organization seeks to provide news, reports and analysis to inform, educate and develop environmental policies for all levels of government in Canada and Internationally.  We are committed to being part of a global movement against the capitalist destruction of our shared environment.  Our current economy is unsustainable and an unethical catalyst to ever increasing global warming. This model assumes endless growth and limitless potential wealth, that completely disregards the fact that the earth’s life support capacity is finite.  We respect the integrity, resilience, and beauty of the common wealth of all life as the foundation for a new sustainable economic model for our finite planet that will benefit generations to come.

Corporate ENGO’s have maintained unaccountability through a major funding disparity with grassroots and community led resistance, and protect that massive funding disparity through a lack of accountability. Whether directly or indirectly, industry and foundations that are linked to industry steer ENGO politics away from grassroots movements and create an elite structured caviar class of environmentalist that is tied to ‘business as usual’ solutions.

“Of the people, by the people, for the people.”

Our organization stands united behind ‘The Peoples Agreement’ agreed upon in Cochabamba, Bolivia, April 2010.

We do not endorse nor promote campaigns, targets, policies nor legislation that undermine the targets and goals within this agreement.

United, we stand behind and actively support this agreement in solidarity with our brothers and sisters of the climate justice movement.

***Our grassroots organization consists of volunteers.  We are funded by ordinary people – not by corporations nor the foundations they create.

Canadians for Action on Climate Change is a member of the Climate Justice Now network.

Climate Justice Now! is a network of organizations and movements from across the globe committed to the fight for social, ecological and gender justice.
