The Council of Canadians and 350.org are teaming up to build waves of pressure on the government to deliver on its promise of a Just Transition Act.
We're organizing and mobilizing for just transition legislation that:
delivers on Canada’s fair-share emissions reductions
protects and strengthens worker rights, Indigenous rights, human rights, and ensures migrant justice
creates new economic institutions to implement the transition
expands the social safety net and reduces growing inequality
creates good green jobs and drives inclusive workforce development
In the next few months, we're organizing on a two-pronged strategy to build support for a just transition in Canada. Along with supporters and members across the country we're bringing batches of parliamentary petitions to MPs to table in the House of Commons again and again. Then, on March 12th, we'll have a national Day of Action for a Just Transition.
We're hosting a few drop in meetings to support you to participate in these two tactics. If you have questions or want to troubleshoot an issue you're having, come on out to a drop-in!
