Join our “Believe” Campaign

To sustain our work today for a healthy environment tomorrow, we need you. With your support, we’ll be able to train future lawyers in the intricacies of environmental justice. We’ll be able to provide accurate, actionable information through educational programming for our colleagues and allies who, like you, believe we can achieve meaningful change for threatened communities. And we’ll reach out to tens of thousands of individuals who, collectively, can be a strong voice for laws that protect all of us.

Say you believe. Believe that better laws make a difference. Believe that Indigenous communities deserve environmental justice. Believe that our children deserve to have their futures protected. Tell us what you believe, and, with your permission, we’ll share it with others to build momentum for change.

I Believe...

CELA is a non-profit specialty legal aid clinic. We work to protect human health and our environment by seeking justice for those harmed by pollution and by working to change policies to prevent such problems in the first place. With funding from Legal Aid Ontario, we provide legal services free of charge to qualifying people and groups across Ontario. Representation occurs in the courts and before tribunals on matters of environmental law. CELA’s lawyers have achieved some of the most important environmental law victories and precedent-setting cases in Canada.

The CELA Foundation supports CELA’s research and educational work with access to its extensive resource library (including research assistance), timely webinars and other presentations and educational events. Resources are available to the environmental law and policy community and to the public. The Foundation also helps CELA mentor and train the next generation of environmental lawyers.
