For 2017, we're promoting EarthPLAY for Earth Day! We'll be reaching out to people across the country, throughout the month of April, in a push to get everyone outside - playing and connecting to nature. Stay tuned for announcements on upcoming campaigns and events!
To celebrate Earth Day 2016, we launched our first crowd-funding campaign called #Rooting4Trees, which saw hundreds of pledges lead to more than 4,000 trees planted. We had an interactive forest-bathing pavilion, a school contest to win a $5,000 forest, and more! We also unveiled the new 25th anniversary Earth Flag at the Green Living Show.
Earth Day Every Day was conceived as a five-year program that would challenge and reward people across Canada taking concrete steps to reduce their environmental impact - the first year was "Clean Your Commute". Ultimately, the name of this program became so popular that it came to represent everything our organization strives to achieve throughout the year.
EcoKids offers free, bilingual learning activities and resources for teachers, students, parents and communities to engage in environmental action. EcoKids is designed to inspire children to become life-long environmental stewards through nature connection and play.
The objective of Earth Day Canada's new strategic focus, EarthPLAY, is to put self-directed, unstructured outdoor play back into the natural routine of our children's lives. This happens through our POP-UP Adventure Playgrounds, Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL) pilot project, online resources and more!
They overcome environmental obstacles. They engage others in support of a sustainable community. You may know them as a student, neighbour, volunteer group or local business, but to Earth Day Canada, they’re Hometown Heroes working to support a healthier environment.

Youth play a vital role in environmental education. Earth Day Canada is developing a mentorship program that will provide resources and support for young change-makers to be active leaders in promoting the importance of getting outside, connecting with different communities and protecting our planet. Stay tuned for more announcements!
In 2011, CN partnered with Earth Day Canada and launched EcoConnexions, an award-winning employee engagement program to encourage environmental and sustainability values and initiatives among CN employees.
Earth Day Canada’s Tapestry Program aims to move the environmental agenda forward within diverse communities, and supports greater inclusivity in the environmental sector.
Every year, Earth Day Canada hosts its fundraising gala, an incredibly popular event attended by more than 400 green business leaders, politicians, foodies and inspiring change-makers. There are plenty of sponsorship opportunities and it's the perfect venue to meet like-minded eco-professionals (or just have a ton of fun!).
