  • It’s a Question of their Lives: Activism and Environmental Conflicts

    Environmental Justice Panel moderated by Françoise David

    Wednesday, November 22, 2017, 7pm to 9pm

    Maison du développement durable
    50 Sainte-Catherine Street West
    , metro Place des Arts, room Ste. Catherine  

    - Gina Thésée, professor at UQAM, specializing in environmental education, democracy and social justice: Women’s Words for Voicing their Difference: Socio-Environmental Resistance and Resilience
    - Suzie O’Bomsawin, director of the Ndakinna Office of the Grand Conseil de la Nation Waban-Aki: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
    - Jennifer Beeman, director of Breast Cancer Action Quebec: Environmental Hierarchies that Perpetuate Environmental Racism

    First Nations activists and racialized and marginalized women are at the heart of the battle for environmental justice. Speaking from communities disproportionally impacted by toxic exposures and environmental degradation, they are moving environmental concerns from the abstract “future of the planet” to the immediate health and social consequences of living with chronic exposure to toxic substances.

  • PREVENTION IS YOUNG

    Many people are surprised by the extent of our work with young people.

    Indeed, our Youth Program has many branches. We work with university students who support our mission and want to organize events on campuses with us to educate other students and the public on our work. We work with community groups that work with young people offering our workshops on health and the environment and/or leading DIY activities (Do It Yourself activities making homemade personal care products).

    And now we work with high school students offering our innovative program, Health Connections: Young People Connecting with their Environment and Communities.

  • We applaud committee recommendations to improve CEPA.

    Now it's time for Parliament to act!

    The Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development released its CEPA review.

    This report is an essential starting point to reforming the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) so that Canadians are truly protected from the toxic substances harming our health.

    The report's recommendations must be implemented. The state of our health and that of our ecosystems depend on it.
