About us

We’re building the case for a better earth

Ecojustice was created to fight — and win — for our planet in court. Powered by a dedicated community of supporters, we’re leading the legal fight for a brighter environmental future.

The law is a powerful tool for change. Our legal victories have protected at-risk species, halted fossil fuel projects that came with unacceptable climate risks and kept toxic chemicals out of our air and water.

When polluters put the air and water at risk, we go to court and win. Our legal expertise also uniquely positions us to advocate for stronger, more effective laws to protect people and the environment. As Canada’s largest environmental law charity, Ecojustice has played a key role in the introduction and passage of cornerstone environmental laws.

We’re able to do all this because people like you join forces with us. Together, we are making history with litigation and law reform initiatives to hold Canadian governments to account for acting with urgency in the face of the climate, biodiversity and pollution crises.
