Action Alert: Reinstate funding to the Canadian Environmental Network

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.
