  • We have provided advice and education to people who have questions about a broad range of topics including pesticide use and conserving greenspace in cities, impacts of gravel pits, saving agricultural land or addressing the impacts of the oilsands.
  • We help community groups understand and use legal tools to advance their concerns.
  • We work with policy-makers at all levels of government to create better processes for making environmental decisions.
