Be part of history
Seven young climate leaders, backed by Ecojustice, are taking the Government of Ontario to court. You can help them demonstrate that their case is in the public interest.
Sophia, Zoe, Shaelyn, Shelby, Alex, Madison, and Beze — who brought this lawsuit on behalf of concerned Canadians like you — say that when the Ontario government weakened its climate targets it violated the constitutional right to life, liberty, and security of every person in Ontario.
Their hearing in September 2022 will be the first in Canadian history to directly challenge a government’s climate record under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
No matter the outcome, this case will break new ground and could set a precedent for all future climate litigation in Canada.
