Ecojustice goes to court to tackle Canada’s toughest environmental challenges. Just as labour laws regulate working conditions and wages, environmental laws can be used to limit the use of dangerous chemicals, protect trees from being cut down, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions
Since 1990, their lawyers have represented community groups, non-profits, First Nations, and individual Canadians on the frontlines of the fight for environmental justice. In partnership with their clients, they launch ground-breaking lawsuits that level the playing field so industry interests can’t trump those of people and the planet. They achieve legal precedents that keep harmful substances out of the environment, protect wilderness and wildlife and take aim at climate change.
When their lawyers have done everything they can do with the legal tools they have, they go further, leveraging their expertise to push for stronger laws. We have applied for their assistance.
