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.
We provide education about environmental laws and raise awareness about legal issues that affect our environment.
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.
