The Future Canadians Want

Canada is a great place to live. We all want to keep it that way. This is how.

The answer is quite simple: focus on solutions that improve our quality of life and save money while at the same time reducing climate emissions and our environmental footprint.  We get vibrant neighbourhoods, better transportation, lower energy bills, energy security, and local food and jobs.

We are over 35 million people in Canada. Each and every one of us needs to be part of the Canada’s climate and sustainability plans – in the choices we make, through our work and volunteering in our communities, and through our voices and collective vision for our future.

Public outreach and community engagement can be complex and messy, which is why most climate plans don’t include a strong public component. It’s a huge gap.

At Canada Conserves, we believe community action is not only possible, it is absolutely essential to Canada’s ability to shift to a low carbon future. We cannot do it without the incentives for conservation and investments in our communities that will accelerate a voluntary and graceful transition to a better future. We can’t get there without building a culture of conservation — living better with less.

Our solutions look at ways to support public and community action on climate change and a sustainable future — including government leadership, community planning, and individual action. Our projects look at ways to translate those solutions into action.
