Donors invest knowing that Ecojustice is committed to ethical fundraising and financial accountability. As an organization accredited under Imagine Canada’s national Standards Program since 2014, Ecojustice demonstrates excellence in five areas: board governance, financial accountability and transparency; fundraising; staff management; and volunteer involvement.

Since 1991, Ecojustice has taken polluters and government to court for failing uphold the rule of law. Our values and our mission have never wavered.

While Ecojustice focuses on Canada, the environmental issues we work on are not confined by geography or political borders. Ecojustice, like most Canadian charities, has supporters from around the world. We welcome donations from everyone who wants to contribute to our mission because when we defend nature and combat climate change, we all win.

Ecojustice is proud to be 100 per cent funded by 19,000 individuals and organizations who share our vision of a thriving environment, safe climate, and healthy communities protected by effective, well-enforced laws.

  • 71 per cent of Ecojustice’s funding comes from individual donors.
  • 23 per cent comes from grants.
  • 6 per cent comes from bequests


We invite, and are grateful to accept, gifts which meet our strict criteria. We do not accept donations:

  • Where the donation is given on the condition that the donor will influence Ecojustice’s strategic choices.
  • Where the donor is, or likely to become, an opposing party to Ecojustice litigation.
  • Where the donor is engaged in activities that conflict with Ecojustice’s mission to use the law to defend the environment.
  • Where the donor represents any industry or endeavour where there are reasonable grounds to believe that the industry or endeavour violates, or intends to violate, Indigenous Peoples’ rights, including Free, Prior, and Informed Consent as per UNDRIP.
  • Where the donor is a major antagonist to the recognition of Indigenous Peoples’ rights, including rights to Free, Prior and Informed Consent.
