Call for Interest/Participation

Canadian Environment Week is a special time of the year to review our environmental footprints and to see what we can do to minimize them. Remember that every action counts, big or small.

Forests play a crucial role in our lives. They are vital for regulating climate, air, soil and water. Forests also support jobs in hundreds of rural communities. Canada’s boreal forest alone provides shelter to half of Canada’s 450 bird species and a wide range of mammals, including moose, wolves, caribou, bears, rodents, rabbits, lynx and mink. So get informed, get involved and act now! You can make a difference in preserving Canada’s forests.

New this year! From April 30 to June 11, take part in our Canadian Environment Week Geocaching Contest! in participating National Parks, National Historic Sites and National Wildlife Areas throughout Canada. You could win a Weatheradio or other interesting prizes!
