The Canadian Environmental Law Association has been one of our primary sources of proactive, detailed policy analysis for the things most important to the 250,000 rural residents we represent. As a not for profit with a small staff, having CELA’s expertise and supportive research has allowed FOCA to thoughtfully consider and weigh in on important issues from clean water, to natural resources management, to land use planning and more. Our 500+ community groups rely on our role to curate and interpret complex legal issues, looming problems and possible solutions; we would not have been able to provide this, nor source this type of specific legal analysis without CELA.
