Quebec Environmental Law Centre

The vision for the Quebec Environmental Law Centre / Centre québécois du droit de l’environnement (CQDE) is to evolve in a society where all living beings and the environment are legally protected for their intrinsic value, and where all members of society actively collaborate to ensure this protection.

The CQDE plays an essential role in the evolution of law and access to justice in environmental affairs. The CQDE contributes to the development of a legal framework that responds to emergent environmental challenges. Through its actions, the CQDE acts as a guardian of environmental laws, and ensures that these laws are respected. For more information, please visit
