The Canadian Environmental Network (RCEN) facilitates cooperation and networking among non-profit, non-governmental environmental organisations across Canada and internationally. Since 1977, we have been enabling and enhancing our members' work of protecting, conserving, restoring and promoting a clean, healthy, sustainable environment.
What we do
The RCEN is an independent, non-partisan organisation. Our primary role is to support environmental NGOs (ENGO) by providing them with valuable networking and communication services.
We also provide opportunities for ENGO representatives to participate in national and international meetings, conferences, workshops and consultations on environmental policy issues through a transparent, bilingual and democratic delegate selection process.
The RCEN is a vital bridge between large and small groups and individuals from coast to coast to coast. By working together at consultations and workshops-or through various caucuses or committees-local, regional and national groups can share best practices and build strong relationships between each other and with various partners.
Federal government departments and agencies and other environmental organization that are interested in ensuring a multi-stakeholder approach to national and international consultation and policy development are invited to contact us.
