The city of Guelph is growing rapidly; opportunities to protect its unique natural areas are shrinking.

Make it official: protect nature, wildlife, and rich cultural history in Guelph’s former Reformatory Lands. Show your support for a national urban park in Guelph, Ontario. 

Frustrated by the dystopian world we find ourselves in, where a provincial government known for ripping out electric vehicle recharging stations at the beginning of its mandate is now selling us the idea that mining in the peatlands, a globally significant carbon sink, is good for the climate? Tell Canada and Ontario that we can’t sacrifice Indigenous lands & ancient peatlands for critical minerals.

Nestled in the heart of the single largest unbroken boreal forest in the world is the Fawn River Indigenous Protected Area (IPA). Leaders from Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) Nation have spent years safeguarding this watershed following the sacred instructions from Elders that have been passed on from generation to generation. While these lands are protected under KI’s laws, it is vital Ontario also protect them using its own laws. Urge Premier Ford to protect the Fawn River IPA.

The federal government promised Canadians they would halt and reverse nature loss by 2030 in Canada. Minister Guilbeault did his job when he made a recommendation to cabinet regarding the plight of Ontario boreal caribou. Now we need cabinet to do its job. Tell Canada it’s time to intervene. It’s time for Canada to apply an order using its powers under the Species at Risk Act to protect threatened caribou habitat.

Moose Cree First Nation has repeatedly petitioned the Ontario government to outlaw logging, mining and other industrial development in the watershed—to no avail.
