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.
- 75 per cent of Ecojustice’s funding comes from individual donors.
- 23 per cent comes from grants.
- 10 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 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.
