TOGETHER, WE CAN DEMAND A GREEN AND JUST RECOVERY

The federal government is making significant investments to help the Canadian economy bounce back from the effects of COVID-19. Demand that these  investments prioritize Canada’s shift towards a stronger, equitable, and more sustainable society -- this means working to reverse climate change and species and habitat loss.

WHAT IS A GREEN & JUST RECOVERY?

A Green and Just Recovery for Canada means above all, investing in a society that places people’s health and the well-being of natural ecosystems that sustain all species above corporate profits. That means that any investments made cannot set environmental progress back, undermine environmental justice, or be incompatible with Canada’s environmental commitments.

A Green and Just Recovery for Canada means investing in:

A LOW CARBON ECONOMY

A transition to a sustainable low-carbon economy

LAND & ECOSYSTEM
PROTECTION

The protection and restoration of land, freshwater, and ocean ecosystems along with the wildlife that call these places home

ENDING SINGLE USE PLASTICS

An end to the use of single-use plastics, and the growth of a circular economy

NO MORE TOXIC CHEMICALS

The replacement of toxic chemicals used in agricultural, consumer goods and manufacturing with safer alternatives

HEALTHY AFFORDABLE COMMUNITIES

The development of accessible, affordable and healthy communities and transportation networks

SOCIAL & RACIAL JUSTICE

A future that prioritizes social and racial justice, economic equity, and well-being, built in partnership with Indigenous Peoples and the communities most exposed to environmental harm
