Earth Day Canada

Earth Day Canada (EDC), a national environmental charity, provides Canadians with the practical knowledge and tools they need to support a healthier environment. EDC educates, empowers and inspires Canadians, of all ages and backgrounds, to achieve local solutions to improve the state of the environment through year-round and award-winning programs.

The success of EDC programs - focused on education, action, recognition and financial support - lies in the way they teach Canadians about simple, easy-to-accomplish actions that any person can do.
