CELA has been at the forefront in making our environment cleaner, healthier and safer for everyone! CELA helped develop Ontario’s Environmental Bill of Rights and better chemical regulation laws in Canada. We were instrumental in getting lead out of gasoline, banning asbestos, and achieving widespread bans and restrictions on the cosmetic use of pesticides.
There is so much more to celebrate, including the additional milestone of 40 years as an Ontario Legal Aid Specialty Clinic. We look forward to our next 50 years of helping low-income and vulnerable clients and citizens’ groups participate in environmental decision-making and improve the environmental health of their communities, as our work is not finished!
