This toolkit was created to give citizens and civil society groups the tools they need to actively participate in federal elections on issues that are important to them.
In particular, the toolkit aims to ensure that candidates are aware of the issues involved in the reform of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA) and that they publicly commit to its reform. However, it is intended to be useful for any political issue that concerns a group or individual.
The Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA) is the cornerstone of Canadian environmental regulation. It regulates the use of toxic substances, hazardous waste, air pollution emissions and toxic runoff and marine discharges into our waterways and much, much more.
'Let’s have a conversation about Healthy Places' is a toolkit developed by The Active Neighbourhoods Canada network. It highlights key information on Canadian urban issues: cost-benefit analysis on active and motorized transportation options, inspiring practices and information on the challenges of addressing equity and health.
Enough to fuel your next electoral debates and workshops on the theme of urban policies! The Active Neighbourhoods Canada network produced this tool as part of the 2019 federal campaign, but invites Canadians to use it for elections at all levels of government.
The purpose of the “Take Action” activist toolkit is to equip our members and all citizens with everything they need to bring about societal change through collective action. The toolkit is divided into three sections: Communicating with Government, Working with Industry and Connecting with the Media. Each section contains advice and useful tips.
We educate the public about environmental toxicants and their links to breast cancer, and advocate for stricter industry regulation and stronger government policy regarding toxic chemicals in consumer products that put women at greater risk for the disease. Our work aims to improve the quality of life for women with breast cancer now and to prevent or reduce its incidence for future generations.
