INFORM.

We believe in maintaining the environment for current and future generations.

We strive to work with policy- and law-makers, as well as politicians, to help ensure that our province has the strongest, most effective laws in place to protect our environment.

Why We’re Here

We are a group of lawyers, students, and members of the general public who use the power of the law to protect our environment. With a focus primarily on Saskatchewan, we intend to educate the public about environmental law issues and encourage our government to uphold and put in place the most effective environmental laws.
