Webinar – Making the Links in Southwestern Ontario: Presenting CELA’s Toolkit for Environmental Action

This webinar originally aired on March 24, 2023.

Low-income individuals and disadvantaged communities are impacted most heavily by development. They bear the disproportionate burden of adverse health and environmental impacts from contaminants discharged into the air, land, and water.

On March 24, CELA and the Community Legal Clinic – Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk presented the latest “Making the Links” Toolkit highlighting the connections between environment and health in the region. 

This toolkit contains information on how you can use the law to prevent environmental harm to you, your community, and your region.  It includes useful tips on public engagement, an introduction to available legal tools, and information to help you better understand the environmental law landscape in Southwest Ontario.

We invite you to read, share and explore this toolkit to learn more about the important role we all share in advocating for just, equitable, and healthy communities.
