Right now, we have a rare opportunity to make Canada better, greener and more inclusive, innovative, and equitable. That is what the federal government has promised to do in its upcoming federal budget announcement.
And that is what we must demand they do as they decide how to allocate billions of our tax dollars.
To realize this opportunity and fulfil their promises, these critical investment decisions must:
- Expand and leverage nature-based climate solutions;
- Protect 25% of land and ocean by 2025, and support Indigenous-led conservation;
- Deliver a strong climate law, ambitious targets, and policies that centre climate justice; and
- End fossil fuels subsidies and shift spending to a Green and Just Recovery.
Our country and our planet are facing an urgent nature crisis — we need our national leaders to stay true to their word. We must have enough funding for bold initiatives with clear deadlines and full accountability.
WWF-Canada is joining environmental groups across Canada for One Earth One Voice — a campaign rallying all our supporters to demand that the federal government prioritize a Green and Just Recovery in the new budget.
Let your elected officials know that Canada needs a Green and Just Recovery.
Please keep your green recovery promises
