Ecojustice goes to court and uses the power of the law to defend nature, slow climate change, and stand up for the health of our communities.
We pursue innovative cases that have the potential to set precedents nation-wide and deliver solutions to our most urgent environmental problems.
We represent community groups, non-profits, Indigenous communities, and individual Canadians on the frontlines of the fight for environmental justice.
On behalf of our fearless clients, we have secured dozens of precedent-setting legal victories that protect wildlife and habitats, strengthen environmental policy, and hold polluters to account.
For more than 25 years, we’ve gone to court to protect wilderness and wildlife, challenge industrial projects, and keep harmful chemicals out of the air, water, and ecosystems we all depend on.
From our offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa, and Toronto, we take on strategic public interest litigation that has an impact from coast to coast to coast.
We are proud to be funded by individuals and organizations who share our values. Together, we are building the case for a better earth.
