Founded in 1992, ACAP Saint John is a community-based, non-profit organization that encourages communication, partnership and active involvement from all sectors of the community in managing our environment. Our mandate is to work with the community to improve the environmental health of Saint John, and to respond to the growing demand from the community to have a more active role in environmental decision-making.
ACAP Saint John aims to provide communities with environmental solutions to generational challenges, as well as building capacity for change and adoption of better water practices. We continue to affect long-term planning for greening and revitalization in Saint John by offering our expertise and our research outcomes to all levels of government, corporations and institutions throughout the region. Some of our past projects have included water quality monitoring, riparian enhancements, fish passage improvements, culvert removals and more broad planning projects like watershed management plans and coastal adaptation planning.
At its heart, ACAP has always been an environmental incubator, one that transforms and evolves our region’s landscapes with the help of governments, companies and community collaborators. Our work is designed to be seen, felt and experienced throughout the environment – from our wetlands and coastlines to our streets and public spaces.
