Save Canada's Environmental Laws

The Canadian government is systematically dismantling our environmental laws at the request of the oil and gas industries.

It has eroded the laws protecting our fish, water, land and climate, putting our health and communities at risk.

People from every corner of our nation stood up against the changes, fighting for our lakes, rivers and fish, calling for an end to the shredding of our environmental safety net. 

Together, we are demanding:

  • strong legal protection of what we value, like fish, clean water and a safe climate
  • a say in the environmental decisions that affect us

Join the fight to make our voices heardTake action now!

Send a letter telling the federal government you want strong laws for fish.

Sign our petition calling for an end to the rollbacks - tell the government we will not be ignored!

Learn More

See our Issues and Resources page to learn more about how the rollbacks reduce protection for fish habitat, greatly limit environmental reviews and public participation, and eliminated protection of over 99% of Canada’s waterways.

Read the common set of principles endorsed by groups nationwide, that outlines how Canada’s environmental laws can support a clean, healthy, and sustainable Canada.
