Background of the organization
Environmental Defence is a leading Canadian environmental advocacy organization that works with government, industry and individuals to defend clean water, a safe climate and healthy communities.

Funding will contribute to the National Public Transit Campaign. The goal is to work with coalition partners to intervene collectively through a new federal-provincial transit funding agreement, government relations and public mobilization. Initial focus will be in Ontario, where 60% of transit users reside, then scaling to Quebec, BC and other provinces.
