About This Charity
Friends of the Earth Canada stands on guard for Mother Earth and her people — taking action to confront polluters, holding governments to account for their promises and insisting they enforce laws.
We insist that every resident of Canada deserves a clean, safe environment and can exercise his or her environmental rights.
We stand in solidarity with vulnerable people and communities to confront the impacts of climate change and toxic pollution.
We stand in solidarity with Friends of the Earth groups in 73 countries uniting the most diverse grassroots environmental movement in the world.
Friends of the Earth Canada (FoE) has grown from a small group of volunteers in 1978 to one of the country’s most important voices speaking out on environmental issues.
FoE believes that a healthy environment is the basis for our economic and social well-being. FoE endorses the “precautionary” and “polluter pays” principles. Characterized by multi-stakeholder involvement and sound science, FoE’s work is oriented towards long-term solutions. FoE supports democratic processes and is politically neutral.
The environment includes people. This human dimension must be an integral part of environmental solutions.
