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.

We represent community groups, non-profits, Indigenous communities, and individual Canadians on the frontlines of the fight for environmental justice.
On behalf of our fearless clients, we have secured dozens of precedent-setting legal victories that protect wildlife and habitats, strengthen environmental policy, and hold polluters to account.
Since 1990, we’ve gone to court to protect wilderness and wildlife, challenge industrial projects, and keep harmful chemicals out of the air, water, and ecosystems we all depend on.
From our offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto and Halifax, we take on strategic public interest litigation that has an impact from coast to coast to coast.
We are proud to be funded by individuals and organizations who share our values. Together, we are building the case for a better earth.
We are Canada’s largest environmental law charity.
