Take Action: Speak Out to Defend Canadian Wild Places

The Conservation Alliance funds organizations working to protect threatened wild places throughout North American.  In Canada, there are many such places.  The Conservation Alliance has contributed more than $900,000 to Canadian organizations working to protect these places.

Our ability to fund Canadian organizations including Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, Rivers Without Borders, Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative, Sierra Club BC, Raincoast Conservation Foundation, Dogwood Initiative, Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition and Forest Ethics is under threat.

The Canadian federal budget bill contains huge changes to Canada's environmental laws. The changes being proposed range from replacing the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act with much weaker legislation to restricting the ability of Canadian environmental non-profits to receive funding from organizations based in the United States.  This limits our collective voice and threatens Canadian wilderness.

It is time to speak out.
