ACTION ALERT: Reinstate funding to the Canadian Environmental Network. SIGN THE PETITION HERE!
The Canadian Environmental Network and its provincial affiliate networks need your help!
Historically, the Canadian Environmental Network and its provincial affiliate networks received annual core funding from the Government of Canada. This was used to facilitate networking on environmental issues across the country, coordinate national and provincial issue-based caucuses, coordinate ENGO participation in federal public consultation processes, and maintain open lines of communication between ENGOs and the federal government.
In 2011, as part of the across-the-board cuts to civil society organizations by the previous federal government, all federal funding to the RCEN and its provincial affiliate networks was cut. This left the national network and most of the affiliates with functioning primarily on a voluntary basis with limited capacity to do their work.
There is hope that the current government will provide for renewed funding in its upcoming budget. This funding is crucial for the survival of the national network and many of the provincial affiliate networks. A proposal has been submitted. It now needs strong and immediate support from environmental groups and individuals across the country.
This is where you come in!
Please take a few minutes to write to Prime Minister Trudeau and your MP telling them why you value the RCEN, your provincial affiliate network, or environmental networking at the national level in general. Feel free to use the template letter provided below. You can personalize it based on your experience or simply copy and paste.
Trudeau’s email is and you can find your MP’s email here:
Let’s show our federal politicians that a strong, well-connected grassroots environmental community is essential to a strong Canada! See template letter to the Prime Minister HERE.
