Take Action on Climate Change Now

In Canada and all over the world, clear signs of a rapidly changing climate are becoming ever more clear. Devastating droughts, heat waves, melting glaciers, wildfires, floods, destroyed agriculture, and increasingly unpredictable storms are just a few examples of the large-scale destruction of the environment.

Without immediate action from the governments of Canada and those around the globe, the ecological biosystems that the survival of our species – and millions of others – depend on, will no longer even be reparable. The Confederation of Canadian Unions demands the federal and provincial governments take action now to reduce carbon emissions, fight climate change and protect our environment.

Send a strong message to the government now
