Earth Day - April 22 - and Every Day!

Celebrating Through Action:
April 22nd – and Every Day

Historical Backgroung

Earth Day was initially celebrated on April 22, 1970, marking the inception of the environmental movement. It has since evolved into the largest participatory environmental movement on the planet.

The organization was established in France and Canada in 1990, aligning with the internationalization of the Earth Day movement. In Quebec, since 1995, Earth Day has been celebrated through a variety of awareness-raising activities concerning environmental issues. The organization’s capacity to mobilize local stakeholders has facilitated its growth, leading to the development of numerous initiatives on April 22 and throughout the year.

In 2019, Jour de la Terre Québec joined forces with the Canadian association to become Jour de la Terre Canada / Earth Day Canada, so that the environmental support programs carried out in Quebec would expand nationally.

Earth Day Canada holds the Earth Day trademark in France and Canada.
