Canada’s treasured parks and protected areas not only protect nature and help tackle climate change, but also support the country’s economy and Canadians’ mental and physical health.
In June the federal government reaffirmed its commitment to protecting 25% of land and ocean by 2025 and 30% by 2030, which is an important step. Now they need to invest in implementing this promise on the ground.
The recent global pandemic has forced us to consider the link between nature, human health, and economic health and to re-think our future. Investing in nature protection as part of recovery will help rebuild a healthier, more equitable and green society and economy.
Help make this happen by sending an email to the Prime Minister and Finance Minister. Your letter will also be copied to the Minister of Infrastructure, Minister of Canadian Heritage and your local Member of Parliament.
We encourage you to personalize your letter and add your own story on why parks are important to you.
