BUILDING THE
JUST TRANSITION

Join the Council of Canadians in demanding just transition legislation in the first 100 days of Parliament.


The Council of Canadians

is working with locally rooted campaigns to demand just transition legislation that works for people and communities.

The Council of Canadians directly supports local just transition campaigns and links local activists across the country. Individually, these groups are demanding just transition legislation and local action rooted in local experience.

Nationally, we’re leveraging our collective expertise and energy to win real change at the federal level.

GND Community Work

Together, we are building a network of organized communities demanding a just transition, and demanding federal legislation that brings that transition to life for all of us. We know the alternatives needed for such transformative change exist. Now, we’re implementing them in our communities and ensuring our elected decision-makers come along.

The problem

Scientists have issued a “code red for humanity” to tackle the climate crisis, but governments continue to let corporations call the shots.
