Stand up for Democracy 


Right now Canada's Senate is making critical decisions about the fate of Bill C-69 and key laws that protect our environment: the Impact Assessment Act, Canadian Energy Regulator Act and the Canadian Navigable Waters Act.

You can help make sure there are stronger laws in place to protect our land, air and water; keep future generations healthy; and help Canada to respond to climate change and meet Paris Agreement commitments.

Environmental laws Canadians can be proud of

Canada needs this bill

Canadians including Indigenous peoples, scientists and resource companies have worked hard for years to help shape new environmental laws. Laws that work better for climate, nature and communities.

Bill C-69 won’t allow major projects like pipelines, nuclear facilities and dams to receive rubber stamp approval. It will help make sure decisions are based on science, not politics.

Bill C-69 isn't perfect, but it's a law that industry groups, environmentalists, scientists and citizens from across the country agree is a major improvement on the broken laws passed in 2012.

Bill C-69 made it through the House of Commons and is now before the Senate. But the Senate is stalling because the oil industry is spreading misleading information about the bill. Partisan politics are threatening to derail Bill C-69. They may even kill it.

Stand up for democracy and demand laws that will protect our land, air and water for generations to come.

Tell our leaders to pass Bill C-69 because...

It's been shaped by more than two years of review involving scientists, industry, Indigenous peoples and the public. 

It will give Canadians a more transparent view into how energy decisions are made.

It addresses many of the needs of Canadians, environmental groups and industry. 

Despite rumours, it imposes shorter assessment timelines than the current law, and that’s better for project proponents.

It ensures that Canadians’ voices will be heard on major projects that can impact the environment and the economy.
