Healthy communities

No matter where we come from, the colour of our skin or what’s in our wallet, we all want clean air to breathe, fresh water to drink and a safe, healthy environment.

But right now, some communities are bearing the brunt of environmental harms like pollution and climate damage. Often people who have done the least to contribute to environmental damage are feeling its impacts the most – like First Nations communities, people with low incomes, recent migrants and people of colour, those with disabilities or who are young or elderly. 

At EJA, we are pursuing environmental justice by empowering impacted communities with legal and advocacy support.

Together, we can make sure that the management and restoration of the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the places and wildlife we love, benefits all of us, for the long term.
